This petition was submitted during the 2017–2019 Conservative government
Petition We call on Goverment to provide an extra £10M a year for Leicestershire Police.
We call on the Home Secretary to provide an extra £10 million a year for overstretched Leicestershire Police.
It would provide 300 extra officers on the beat to fight increasing crime including shop lifting, burglaries & knife-crime.With fewer officers, the force is struggling to deal with crime.
There are more reported burglaries, instances of shoplifting, people dealing drugs and in some instances children as young as 12 are apparently selling drugs.
Unless something is done and soon, problems will only escalate. Resources are limited across the public sector but it is false economy not to deal with the situation.
People must be able to feel safe in their own homes, and city.
We are hoping that if enough people support the petition the issue will be debated in Parliament.
