Police Funding

20th December 2017

Andrew Bridgen MP for North West Leicestershire has welcomed today’s news of a substantial £450 million increase in police funding across England and Wales.

This includes up to an additional £270 million in police force budgets, so individual forces have the resources they need to respond to changes in demand. Police funding in Leicestershire could increase by up to £4.6 million in 2018/19 as a result of these changes.

Andrew has also welcomed news that the counter terrorism policing budget will rise by 7 per cent, with a £50 million increase taking it to at least £757 million. This means the Government is now spending more on counter terrorism policing than ever before. 

Commenting, Andrew said:

“The first responsibility of government is to keep our country and its citizen’s safe, and to protect our way of life and our values. Over the past seven years crime has fallen by more than a third across the country, but we know there is more to do. That’s why we are putting in this additional investment to help Leicestershire keep people safe in our community.”
