Getting a commitment for effective local policing

Tuesday, December 15, 2009

During Home Office questions in the House of Commons, Meg asked the Minister for Policing for reassurance that the Home Office will continue to support the work that Police Community Support Officers (PCSOs) do in local communities.


Meg Munn (Sheffield, Heeley) (Lab/Co-op): I am sure that my right hon. Friend will be pleased to hear that in my part of Sheffield, the incidence of criminal damage has gone down, with 200 fewer victims last year. Police Community Support Officers are playing a key role in that. Is he committed to continuing with the neighbourhood policing model? Police Community Support Officers function really well when they are supported by other agencies and organisations that focus on neighbourhoods.


The Minister for Policing, Crime and Counter-Terrorism (Mr. David Hanson): Indeed, the neighbourhood policing model was reconfirmed in the White Paper only 10 days ago. The funding of 332 million for next year includes PCSOs and neighbourhood support for policing. It works, because antisocial behaviour perceptions and concerns among individuals across the country have fallen from 21% in 2003 to only 16% in 2009, largely because of the 16,000 PCSOs on the doorstep.
