Gordon Brown has launched Labour’s campaign for the May local elections, pledging to increase high visibility policing and improve public services.
Mr Brown highlighted community policing as a key theme of Labour’s local election campaign during a launch in Stevenage, Hertfordshire.
“Every community of the country is going to have neighbourhood policing with police to call upon, with their mobile phone number available, be able to put a face on the person, be able to call them up and have local meetings to discuss the local issues you’re concerned about,” he said.
“That will lead to neighbourhood contracts, where local residents and police come together to decide ‘here are the priorities, this is what we’ve got to do, this is how we can make it a safer place’.”
The future is bright, the future is…………………hi-vis yellow.
