Cuts to Harrow's police are harming residents
In recent weeks, Gareth Thomas MP has released figures obtained from a Freedom of Information request which revealed that Harrow's police have been cut by nearly 20% since the Coalition Government came to power.
These deeply worrying figures show that front line police officers in Harrow fell by 100 between March 2010 and April 2012.
Further to this, it was revealed last week that London Mayor, Boris Johnson is proposing to close Pinner Police Station and the police counter at the Civic Centre.
The cuts will affect Harrow's residents as there will be less police on the street protecting you. To sign our petition, please click here, and stand up for Harrow's police!
