More police officers in Rugby gets support from Mark Pawsey MP

Supporting the police is a key priority for local MP Mark Pawsey, who has recently met with Inspector Karen Jones to talk about policing within Rugby.

Whilst speaking to Inspector Jones, Mark was able to ask about the key issues facing the police at present including tackling dangerous speeding on our roads, the ongoing work to crack down on “County Lines” drug gangs and their work on community engagement.

Mark was also able to talk to Inspector Jones about the proposals for 100 new officers in Warwickshire which have recently been approved by the Police and Crime Commissioner for Warwickshire, Philip Seccombe. Alongside more frontline officers, this will also create a dedicated Rural Crime Team of specialist new officers to support the rural community in Warwickshire.

Speaking after meeting with Inspector Jones, Mark commented:

“Warwickshire Police do a tremendous job keeping our community safe and I am determined to ensure they get the support they need. This year the Government has enable up to £970 million to come forward for police funding, the greatest increase since 2010. I am pleased that the Warwickshire Police and Crime Commissioner, Philip Seccombe, has made full use of these powers and plans to recruit up to 100 new officers.”

Mark continued:

“It was very useful to be able to talk to Inspector Jones about the current issues which the police are having to deal with in Rugby. I know from speaking to residents that there is a great deal of respect for the police, and they have faced challenges from the changing nature of crime in recent years. I will certainly keep the matters that Inspector Jones raised with me in my mind when discussing policing with my colleagues in Westminster and ensure that concerns of Rugby residents are heard.”
