Local Lib Dem Signs The Real Policing Pledge

December 22, 2009 11:22 AM

Hinckley and Bosworth's Liberal Democrat parliamentary spokesman Michael Mullaney has given his backing to the Police Federation's "real policing pledge".

The pledge commits supporters to upholding the office of police constable, maintaining the number of police, training police, ensuring adequate police numbers in community teams, and honouring the results of the police negotiating board on pay.

Michael Mullaney said: "Theft and domestic violence rise during a recession, which is not the right time to cut back on front-line policing. The Liberal Democrats are committed to more police on the beat, and more effective policing on local priorities."

The "real policing pledge" is a campaign organised by the Police Federation ahead of the general election to highlight crime issues and ask candidates to sign up.
