Julian welcomes 190 additional police officers for North Yorkshire Police

August 3, 2022

Julian has welcomed new figures that show 190 police officers have been recruited in North Yorkshire and York since 2019 as part of the Conservative Government’s pledge to put 20,000 more officers on the streets by March 2023.

Since the recruitment drive was launched in 2019, the 43 police forces across England and Wales have seen an additional 13,790 police officers recruited, putting the Government on track to deliver on its manifesto promise.

The additional officers for York and North Yorkshire builds on the Conservative Government’s Beating Crime Plan and Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Act – aimed at reducing crime, protecting victims, and making the country safer.

This is in addition boosting police funding to a record £15.8 billion and investing £150 million through the Safer Streets Fund over the next three years into community projects to prevent crime – with a focus on neighbourhood crime, anti-social behaviour, and violence against women and girls.

Speaking after the announcement, Julian said:

“Having worked closely with North Yorkshire’s Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner, Zoe Metcalfe, I know just how valuable boots on the ground are – particularly with the challenges of allocating resources for a city like York as well as the more rural parts of North Yorkshire“

“Our police do a great job keeping our city, suburbs and villages safe, and now with my Conservative party’s manifesto pledge bolstering their numbers, we can expect to see even more police on the ground.

Home Secretary Priti Patel, added:

“We promised the British public 20,000 more police before March 2023 and that is what we are delivering. The total number of officers is now already at a 10 year high, with thousands more still on the way to protect the public from harm.

“That means more officers out patrolling our streets, bearing down on anti-social behaviour and violent crime, and helping to level up communities across the country.”
