LETTER: More police to tackle crime

I am writing to call for more police officers in the county of Sussex given a spate of burglaries on shops and on private houses.

My trade union has a campaign called ‘freedom from fear’.

People should feel safe whether it be at work or in their homes.

Society should invest in more police officers - and reduce the ‘politically correct’-driven red tape on police officers to improve effectiveness and expand time spent in the community rather than on inane paperwork.
