Proposals for a changed profile of policing in the West Midlands and the rest of the country have been slammed by Black Country MP John Spellar as ‘surrender to yobbos and criminals’.
John Spellar MP said:-
“Over recent years crime has fallen and public confidence has risen. Now drastic cuts from the Tory Government are putting all this at risk. However, Police Chiefs are making the wrong call by cutting back on visible policing. They are in danger of being seen to surrender the streets back to the yobbos and criminals and public confidence will plummet again. Police Commissioners round the country should demand a rapid rethink!”
