Darren joins North Bristol Beat Team for Friday night ride-along

MP for Bristol North West, Darren Jones joined the North Bristol Beat Team for a ride-along on February 17th.

Darren joined the officers from Avon and Somerset Police to see their typical Friday night and discuss how funding cuts have impacted the local police force.

Darren said:

“ I found the visit extremely useful and would like to thank the beat team for taking me out. The police do a fantastic job in really difficult circumstances. The never-ending cuts to local police budgets have had an impact on the service the police can deliver on the ground and I know my constituents are concerned about crime and ASB levels – that’s why I’ve written to the minister explaining the force is at a tipping point and needs more funding. I’ll keep championing proper police funding and the scrapping of the public sector pay cap so we ensure we pay our public servants properly for the incredible work they do – and they stay in the job.”
