The Liberal Democrat candidate as next Mayor of London, Caroline Pidgeon says:
London is a great place. But violent crime is up 66% in the last 8 years. That’s not good enough.
If we’re going to cut crime then we need more police on the streets. That’s why I’m proposing an extra 3,000 police on the streets if I’m elected Mayor – 10% more than we currently have.
Can you support my petition for more police?
Every signature makes it easier to win this argument.
It’s particularly important to get more police on tubes, buses, bus stops, trains and stations where crime is already too high. Police don’t just catch criminals – we know that they are a powerful deterrent to crimes and anti-social behaviour.
