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.

Ruth George, Labour's Champion for High Peak

“There has never been such a huge difference between the political parties and the future they offer. I want people in High Peak to know that there is a better alternative than a government which is about to close nearly 20 hospitals, cut £3 billion from our schools, plunge over 4 million working families into poverty through their harsh cuts to Universal Credit and refuses to rule out cuts to pension increases or higher tax and national insurance. In contrast, I will promote Labour’s message of long-term investment in public services, fairness for working people, and decent support for pensioners and those who cannot work.”
