Investing in better policing to protect our communities

Yesterday the government announced that Britain's police forces will receive investment up to £287 million next year, delivering more visible policing in communities to cut crime and help victims feel safe. 

  • Making our streets safer has always been central to the Conservative mission to level up this country, because everyone should have the security that comes from having a safe street and safe home, wherever they live. 
  • That is why we are continuing to invest in cutting crime and boosting confidence in our police – investing up to £287 million next year to take total funding for policing up to £17.2 billion. We are also giving policing the funding they need to maintain the 20,000 additional police officers to be recruited by next year.  
  • With over 15,000 additional officers already recruited and thousands more on the way, this package will support our forces to keep our communities safe across the United Kingdom.
