In January’s budget from City Hall, Labour failed to save funding for additional police officers - breaking a key election promise.
Tower Hamlets is already seeing an increase in crime, whilst it drops in other parts of the capital. Reported crime rose by nearly 8% in Tower Hamlets. Across London it dropped by nearly 3%. Many residents have told us that anti-social behaviour and drug related crime is on the increase and is a constant worry.
We call on Labour to:
1: Stick to their 2016 promise to preserve police funding
2: Give Tower Hamlets Police the funding it needs to address the increasing crime in the Borough
