Bromley police will merge with Sutton and Croydon police the Mayor of London has announced. Bromley LibDems condemn this decision and ask all concerned Bromley residents to sign a petition calling on the Mayor to urgently reconsider this decision.
"Bromley is geographically the largest borough in London, and the police here are already under strain - we lost 3 police stations just a few months ago, our local police teams do not have dedicated cars, and the borough has gone down to one pursuit car. Now our police cars will be expected to help in Croydon or Sutton - how on earth are they going to get back quickly enough to assist local residents?" said LibDem road safety campaigner Chloe-Jane Ross. "We all know how much pressure the police are under due to Tory cuts, but while this might be a possible solution in inner boroughs, combining Bromley, Croydon and Sutton would create a huge area which in our opinion is just too big for one unit to cover without their own dedicated resources."
Please sign the petition to show your opposition to this merger, our Police need your support to fight for more resources.
