Keep our area safe with more police officers

This is one of the safest areas in London, but we need the police officer numbers to keep it that way.

Conservatives in government are delivering 20,000 extra police officers for our streets, while the Lib Dems and Labour have consistently voted against money for more police. I will push for our fair share of new police officers to ensure you can feel safe on our streets.

I will also be working with the local police to tackle some of the common problems facing the area, especially catalytic converter thefts, burglary, domestic violence and anti-social behaviour.

Meeting with Sutton Police

This afternoon I met virtually with Chief Superintendent Dave Stringer, Borough Commander for Croydon, Bromley and Sutton Police, to discuss ongoing operational matters and to raise specific concerns that constituents have highlighted with me in recent weeks.

Police Officer Numbers

It's great news for Londoners that, under plans from this Conservative Government, we are going to see an increase in police officer numbers on our streets.

Catalytic Converter Thefts

Lots of residents have been in touch with me concerned about the theft of catalytic converters, including Saffron who challenged four men who were attempting to steal a catalytic converter on her road, and was chased back to her home by those men armed with scaffold poles.

Advice on Catalytic Converter theft

Catalytic converters clean the air coming out of car exhausts, but they contain previous metals so have become a target for thieves.
