More Police Now!

I have some strong views about Policing. Many, many people from across Shepway contact me and tell me about how their lives are ruined by vandalism, threatening behaviour, graffiti and general anti-social behaviour. The letters don't just come from our large towns. They come from every part of Shepway. Very often, each individual incident sounds almost trivial - but add them up and this issue is extremely serious for a lot of people. There are a number of initiatives in Shepway which are supported by the Council and the Police amongst which are trying to address this problem. I support them fully. However, in my view, they are unlikely to work without a substantial increase in the number of visible Police Officers on Patrol during the times of the day that these problems are most acute.
