Lloyd Russell-Moyle the Parliamentary Candidate for Lewes has condemned the cuts which are being imposed on Sussex Police through cuts by this government.


Lewes which is the home town of the Sussex Police Headquarters will be particularly badly hit and Lewes Labour party is liaising with Unions to ensure a co-ordinated response.

Mr Russell-Moyle went on to say “rather than cutting frontline services and support staff we should scrap the useless and costly Police Crime Commissioners, be looking at integrating management and admin from all blue light services across sussex and ensuring that community policing is preserved” 

UNIOSN stated: “The UNISON Sussex Police and Justice Branch together with our colleagues in the Police Federation now consider that we have reached a tipping point and that Policing in Sussex will become increasingly withdrawn to small urban areas leaving vast districts of the county without a Police presence. The Federation believes that these cuts will have consequences and we fully endorse that statement.”

Responding to the news from Sussex Police Force, Shadow Policing Minister, Jack Dromey MP, said:
“The news that Sussex Police is to cut a fifth of its serving officers serves as yet another reminder of the catastrophic consequences of the cuts that this Government has imposed on our Police Service.

“Time and again we have offered the Government solutions with smarter savings that would protect over 1,000 frontline officers but instead they insist on an approach that risks the safety and security of our citizens.”
