Sign the petition to stop police privatisation

From Robert Evans, Labour’s candidate for Surrey’s Police Commissioner


The Government wants Surrey Police to sell contracts to the private sector to run vital crime services like crime investigation, forensics, answering 999 calls, providing custody and a wide range of other police activities. This privatisation is being pushed by the Government on ideological and cost-saving grounds. There is no evidence that the private sector could run police services more efficiently. In reality privatisation inevitably leads to poorer services as private companies cut back so as to increase their profits. In the end, Surrey residents could all become victims. Accordingly we the undersigned oppose these plans and call on the Government and Surrey to keep our police publicly controlled. Please sign now.
