cuts to police staff and resoucres

I again took the opportunity to raise the issue of cuts to police staff and resources that have affected us in Barnsley East.

But time and time again on doorsteps around our community I’m told of the concerns people have about the effect this has had an anti-social behaviour. Too often people’s lives are being disturbed by often aggressive anti-social behaviour, including that which takes place on off-road bikes and mopeds.

So today I brought up these concerns in Parliament, and called once again for our local police officers to be given the proper resources and support to tackle anti-social behaviour in Barnsley East.
