The increase in serious violence is worrying and sadly some people living in our area do not feel as safe as they should.
It is the Prime Minister's job to make our streets safer and we have already began work to do just that, putting away criminals for rehabilitation and ensuring that the law abiding majority can live their lives free from the fear of crime.
Once we get Brexit out of the way the Conservative Government will have a heavy focus on reducing crime as a priority.
I will do what I can to raise police and crime concerns with Government and to ensure Tamworth gets the funding and support needed to keep crime to a minimum. Whether it is shoplifting, cyber fraud or car theft, every crime matters and I will do what I can to make Tamworth safer.
