Bromley Town second worst for weapon crime


New stats from Met Police show Bromley Town was the 2nd worst ward in the borough for weapon crime - news coming only days after we heard that police in Greater London are facing a real-term cut of £26.3 million this year.   

On 21 December the government announced that core funding for police budgets will remain exactly the same as last year.  Taking into account inflation, that means the Metropolitan Police will fall a real-terms cut of £26.3 million

The additional £270m of funding the government claims to be investing in the police nationally depends entirely on local Police and Crime Commissioners raising the police precept in their areas, which the Liberal Democrats have branded a “stealth council tax rise.”
