I’m writing to residents in my constituency following concerns raised with me about car crime in the area. This is an issue has been raised many times on the doorstep and therefore I shall be meeting with police to discuss car thefts, articles being stolen from cars and wider crime. In order to communicate the severity of concerns, I would be grateful if constituents could get in touch and tell me about their experiences. As much engagement as possible is needed to make sure this is high on the police agenda.
It is vital we continue to focus on improving the law enforcement response while at the same time steering people away from criminal activity in the first place. Our Prime Minister Boris Johnson has made it a priority to make our streets safer and has just announced 20,000 extra police officers to tackle the scourge of crime on our streets.
If you have been affected by car crime, or any other crime for that matter, please email me at email@example.com. Alternatively, you can also write to me at Iain Duncan Smith MP, House of Commons, London, SW1A 0AA.
