We must adopt a zero tolerance approach to crime and antisocial behaviour. This starts at the ground level. Common sense dictates more police on the streets will help prevent crime and help catch criminals.

Increase police numbers in the community, with officers on the beat, engaging with the local community. Ensure there is more visible policing with a focus on combating violent crime, robbery and burglary rather than enforcing restrictions on free speech and harassing people sitting on a park bench.

Target the menace of County Lines drug dealers, gangs and the growth of knife crime.

Our police need much better technology to help them when they are on the streets. Some of what they currently use is archaic. This can substantially reduce bureaucracy and paperwork.
