Lib Dems to put more Sevenoaks and Swanley bobbies on the beat

The Liberal Democrats have announced they would boost investment in police forces by £300m a year.

This is in stark contrast to the Conservatives who have overseen devastating cuts to community policing.

Theresa May as Home Secretary and now Prime Minister has cut policing budgets by over £2 billion, eroding the very fabric of community policing.

Liberal Democrat parliamentary spokesman Alan Bullion commented:

"This investment in our police is absolutely vital. Under Theresa May - first as Home Secretary and now as Prime Minister, our police have had to deal with the most brutal of cuts. These are now cutting into the bone.

"Our police work tirelessly to keep us safe and this Government has completely betrayed them.

"Only the Liberal Democrats have a credible plan to reverse the increase in violent crime, boost community confidence and ensure the police have the resources they need to keep us safe."
