More local police in our neighbourhoods
The understaffing of the local police force is exacerbated by the trend towards centralisation, administration and the policing of international events. It will be dealt with as a priority and partly through the establishment of a regional police training college, with the goal of re-establishing neighbourhood policing. This is important for forging bonds with the local community, preventing radicalisation, and policing minor offences which nevertheless impact heavily on quality of life. There will be a permanent 24 hour presence in the pedestrian zone.
