Conservative Police and Crime commissioner candidate Chris Nelson has welcomed news that Boris Johnson will prioritise police funding for 20,000 additional officers across the country, equating to an extra 150 officers for Gloucestershire.
Commenting on the news Chris said, “I want all residents to be safe and feel safe in our communities. I also want criminals to feel the heat. Our police do a fantastic job in challenging circumstances and this is definitely a case where more is better. At a time when rural crime is on the rise, this is good news for Gloucestershire's residents.”
