Theresa May must resign over cuts to police numbers

This petition had 26 supporters

Since 2010 police numbers have been cut by a staggering 46,700. thats almost 20%. this is absolutely unacceptable and has unnecessarily endangered the British public

Peter Kirkham, the  Chief commissioner for the Met for 20 years said the MET is 'in crisis" due to the cuts  - he warned "the streets of London have been lost" to knife crime and accused Theresa May of being "criminally negligent with the safety of the public" as she slashed funding and clamped down on stop-and-search tactics.

The recent horrific terror attacks Manchester and london have highlighted the dangerous consequences of such cuts to our already stretched police force, 

The person responsible for unnecessarily endangering the British public should be held accountable and resign from her position immediately

That person s the then home secretary Theresa May.
