Policy Statement: Police & Emergency Services

You said:

Crime needs to be back under control and we want police back on our streets.

We want Uttlesford to be a low-crime district and stop the spread of organised crime. We will hold the the elected Essex Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner to account to make sure they improve the performance of our police and the fix funding gaps. Where local policing has been withdrawn by central government funding cuts, we will encourage the funding of police community support officers (PCSOs) and special constables to maintain safety.

We will work to protect our fire service and ensure that we have the fire-fighters and responsive service that we need to protect our homes and businesses.

We will work with the healthcare provisioning authorities to make sure that, in emergencies, ambulances and local paramedics are available within an acceptable time and able to take patients to the closest geographical Accident and Emergency Units.
