Mark's Latest Survey - Your Priorities for Policing and Crime
We’ve recruited 974 new police officers for West Yorkshire. Let's make sure they focus on YOUR priorities.
When this Government was elected, we promised to recruit 20,000 extra police officers.
And we’ve now recruited every single one — including an extra 974 new officers for our area.
We've pledged to work with police across the country to make sure every burglary, theft and break-in is investigated, but there's still more to do.
Labour has had direct control of policing in West Yorkshire since 2012 under an elected PCC and Metro Mayor, so it's only the Conservatives who can hold them to account here.
At the next general election the boundaries of the Wakefield constituency are changing.
That means Ossett, Horbury, Sandal and rural Wakefield will join Kirkburton and Denby Dale in a new constituency called Ossett and Denby Dale.
I'm currently the Member of Parliament for Dewsbury, but at the next election I'll be your Conservative candidate in Ossett and Denby Dale. And because I live locally I know how much crime and antisocial behaviour affects individuals, families and businesses every day.
That’s why I’m asking you to share your priorities for our new police officers.
I want to start working with you now on your priorities - our area has been let down for too long by Labour's elected police and crime chiefs, so we need to get to work.
I’ll go through every survey response with my team, and I’ll discuss your answers at my next meeting with West Yorkshire Police's Chief Constable.
It takes just sixty seconds to fill in the survey, so why not take a moment to let me know what you think?
