18 extra police officers would be put on local streets under plans unveiled by the Conservatives.
Although crime has fallen nationally, it has become worse locally, with moped crime a growing problem.
The Conservatives have proposed hiring extra officers – including four new officers across NW3 – under the Metropolitan Police’s ‘buy one, get one free’ match-funding scheme.
Under this scheme, for each officer Camden pays for, the Met pays for another. This would mean our streets are kept doubly safe for less than a thousandth of Camden’s annual budget.
