Derbyshire constabulary have faced cuts of 700 police officers and support staff since 2010. Derbyshire Police and Crime Commissioner Hardyal Dhindsa has been able to mitigate some of these cuts through additional council tax revenue, recruiting 145 additional staff, but this doesn’t go far enough and the promised 85 additional uniformed officers by 2021 will still leave us with a shortfall. It was good to meet with Hardyal earlier and with a Labour government I know we can work together to fully reverse Conservative police cuts, investing in uniformed officers, PCSOs, Special Constables and support staff to fight crime and keep our streets safe.
