For 13 years, the Conservatives have failed to take proper action on serious areas of rising crime, such as youth knife crime, drug dealing, fraud or town centre anti-social behaviour. Their laissez faire approach to crime and policing has badly let communities down. Labour will take a fundamentally different approach. We know that strong communities are safe communities. That’s why a Labour government will work with communities to prevent crime and catch criminals and require new high standards in policing and the criminal justice system. Prevent crime, punish anti-social behaviour and protect communities like Bracknell Forest. Labour has a plan which would see 13,000 more neighbourhood police and PCSOs on our streets. Labour is the party of law and order.
