“Theresa May has secretly slashed 7,000 local cops she claimed were safe from Tory cuts.
The Prime Minister has repeatedly boasted of protecting the budgets of police forces.
Last June she said: “Since 2015 we have not cut the police but protected their budget.”
But her Government’s own figures directly contradict her claim.
A total of 6,853 police officers and PCSOs were axed from local policing units between 2015 and 2017, according to a Labour analysis of Home Office figures.”
