COMMENT: Security a priority

First published in News

WHAT price for the security and safety of the people of Blackbird Leys? Apparently £12,000 a year.

That’s the amount of money Thames Valley Police is set to save by closing down its base in Blackbird Leys Road in April. If the force is looking for a replacement base would it not make sense to keep the current one until then?

Statistics show that crime levels in Blackbird Leys have dropped in the two years since police officers have been based on the estate.

Surely that’s money well spent?
