Conservative Parliamentary Candidate for Crawley, Henry Smith, has welcomed the Home Secretary, Priti Patel, and the Sussex Police & Crime Commissioner, Katy Bourne, to Crawley to discuss the Prime Minister’s pledge to recruit an additional 20,000 police officers nationwide.
“I was pleased to welcome the Home Secretary and the Sussex Police & Crime Commissioner to Crawley and am grateful for them joining me in meeting local residents in Three Bridges.
“Over the last five years officer numbers in Crawley have remained stable, and among the issues we discussed on the doorsteps today was Boris Johnson’s work to recruit 20,000 new police officers. Sussex is to receive an extra 379, with 129 in the first phase alone.
“The new officers who will now be recruited are a real boost to our law enforcement capacity across the town, and will provide greater public reassurance. They’ll take violent criminals off the streets and protect us and our country.
“The message I’ve received from the doorstep is that these are the priorities that Crawley residents want the Government to focus on – not spending next year under Labour with more referendums and division.
“The choice is clear: Boris Johnson’s action to increase police officer numbers, or entrusting Diane Abbott to keep our streets safe.”
