Tackling crime in Brighton

Labour’s Paul Richards met Brighton Kemptown Labour MP Lloyd Russell-Moyle to discuss plans for more police patrols across Brighton & Hove.

‘We discussed community policing, tackling antisocial behaviour, and building trust in the community. Policing in a major city like Brighton & Hove must be conducted with consent, and the support of all communities’ said Paul.
