• meeting with Tami Garvey-Jones, the new superintendent for St Helens borough

    I met with Tami Garvey-Jones, the new superintendent for St Helens borough, to discuss policing issues within our community.
    Our police force is facing enormous challenges with cuts to resources and officers. We discussed key issues including anti-social behaviour, drugs and knife crime, rural crime, domestic abuse, local police station opening hours and house burglaries. I raised the importance of the need for new police stations in both St Helens and Newton-le-Willows again, and why they are essential to ensure our community is well policed.
    Merseyside police officers, PCSOs, and support staff are doing a tough job – they need and deserve our full support.
