How could you have known?

The Conservative party reduced police numbers in England and Wales by 21,732 officers between 2010 and 2018 - a drop of 15%, according to Home Office figures. If you voted Conservative, you voted to support this reduction. The most affected region is London, which has lost almost half (47 per cent or 9,000 jobs) of its police staff since 2010, including 72 per cent of PCSOs. The worst of the cuts were inflicted in the Metropolitan Police during Boris Johnson’s term as Mayor of London.
