Stop Police cuts and protect our safety

Our Safety and Security is something we all take very seriously, however at the rate we are going there wont be much left of our Police force. Every year the government cuts the UK's police budget by millions a year. Between September 2010 and September 2016 the number of police officers in England and Wales fell by 18,991, or 13%. Where I live we only see one or two policemen out on the street a year. In Fareham alone, in two years the amount of crimes in January went from 213 to 272. There is a direct correlation between police funding/number of police staff and crimes. This is a problem that needs to be attended to.
