Chancellor’s announcement on police funding must mean plans to slash PCSOs are dropped – Caroline Pidgeon

Caroline Pidgeon, Leader of the Liberal Democrat London Assembly Group, commenting on the Chancellor’s announcement in today’s Treasury Spending Review that police spending will now rise in line with inflation said:

 

“It is welcome news that commonsense has obviously now prevailed and that serious plans to slash the grant to the Metropolitan Police Service have now been dropped by government.

“The challenge is now on the Mayor to also back down on his dangerous plans to scrap nearly every Police Community Support Officer in London, plans that would devastate neighborhood policing in our city."
