New figures show that crime in England and Wales has fallen by 32% since 2010, to its lowest level ever.
By continuing to cut crime, Conservatives have shown that they can keep communities safer and more secure whilst at the same time taking the difficult decisions to make Britain fit for the future.
In the last three and a half years our Police and Crime Commissioners have shown that they are vital to making local communities safer. PCCs have the ability to hire and fire chief constables, set local priorities, and they oversee budgets of hundreds of millions of pounds.
And so with crime now at its lowest level ever, you can help secure the future of our country by voting for a Conservative Police and Crime Commissioner on Thursday 5th May.
Voters across the country will soon choose their local representatives for the next four years. These are the people who will provide a strong opposition to the SNP in Scotland, work to deliver real change for Wales, ensure local councils deliver value for taxpayers’ money in England, work with the local police as Police and Crime Commissioners and stand up for Londoners as their next Mayor.
And if you’ve applied to vote early by post, you’ll either have received your ballot – or will be receiving it over the next few days.
The elections are crucial because the alternative is a serious threat to both our national and economic security. On Friday 6th May people across Britain could wake up to find their local area being run by a Labour Party whose leader wants to abolish our Armed Forces, get rid of our nuclear deterrent, put up income tax on hardworking people and print money to pay for public services.
So if you have a postal vote, please do complete and return it today.
And just as important – help spread the word among your friends and family. Every single vote will matter in this crucial election.
