In Parliament: Tackling Crime

This Government takes tackling crime incredibly seriously. That is why the most recent Government Spending Review allocated £3.5 billion over a three-year period to fund the Police Uplift Programme and additional resources for policing.

This critical investment increased this year’s policing budget by £1.1 billion, which will allow the number of uniformed officers on our streets to grow to levels not seen at any point in our country’s history.
