Statement to voters

Every day we see crime and anti-social behaviour damaging our communities.

Full statement

People feel worried, unsafe and let down – just look at the newspapers, your community Facebook page or the neighbourhood WhatsApp.

Our police officers work tirelessly and bravely, but there’s not enough of them. We need more frontline police: that’s what Labour will deliver.

Don’t believe Conservative spin about ‘record police numbers’. That is not the case here in Leicestershire and Rutland.

The Conservatives are letting us down.

The Conservatives are not funding our police properly, most other police forces get a better funding deal than Leicestershire.

My promise: if you elect me and I fail to get the Government to change police funding in Leicestershire’s favour, I will not stand for re-election in four years time. No ifs, no buts.

My plan for safer streets:

Labour will deliver more frontline police.

Strengthened neighbourhood policing tackling local crime like burglary, vehicle crime, shoplifting, anti-social behaviour.

Investment in rural policing to protect farming and countryside communities.

Safer roads: action on speeding and road-racing.

Leadership and partnership addressing the causes of crime and anti-social behaviour.

New long-term plans to combat violent crime, knife crime, drugs and county lines crime.

Action to end violence against women and girls, domestic abuse and hate crime. Stronger support for victims and witnesses.

I will reduce the costs of the Police Commissioner role to invest in the frontline.

We have had years of Conservative chaos. If you are thinking about voting Liberal Democrat or Green, I make this personal appeal: please lend me your vote.

For serious leadership, real change and safer streets, vote Rory Palmer, Labour & Co-operative.

Promoted by Melissa March on behalf of Rory Palmer; Unity House, 21 Fennel Street, Loughborough LE11 1UQ.
