Crime

Mayor Khan has failed to keep Merton & Wandsworth safe.

Ask yourself this question. Do you feel safer now than you did four years ago?

Mayor Khan has repeatedly tried to close Wimbledon police station. Threatened to cut the police and Met budget when crime is rising, and failed to tackle the rise in burglaries and knife crime.

I know, and you know, that Merton & Wandsworth deserves better.

Crime affects jobs, businesses, investment, families, whole communities.

Which is why I’m passionate about making Merton & Wandsworth feel safe again.

Think about it.

Not looking over your shoulder on your way home from work. Not being afraid in the evening to enjoy the fantastic green spaces our local area has to offer. Feeling safe in your community again.

I have a plan to cut crime and deliver a safer Merton & Wandsworth.

If elected, I will:

  • Recruit 150 more police officers and make sure police vacancies are filled – tackling violent gangs, burglaries and cutting crime.
  • Keep Wimbledon police station open – despite Labour’s attempts to close it. And reopen Wandsworth police station.
  • Adopt a zero-tolerance approach to gang activity and increase the use of knife surrender bins.
  • Invest in youth services to get young people out of gangs and into work including delivering new youth centres in Merton & Wandsworth.

So if you, like me, believe in cutting crime. And making where we live feel safe again. Vote for me, Louise Calland, on the 6th of May 2021.

And I, alongside Shaun Bailey (Conservative candidate for Mayor of London), will make Merton & Wandsworth feel safe again.
