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.
