I want to thank everyone in Dudley who supported the campaign for a new police station - this shows what we can achieve when we work together!
I fought hard to keep our old police station open when they closed it a couple of years ago and promised to campaign to bring back a police station back to Dudley Town Centre.
I keep my promises so I’m really pleased about these plans.
Hundreds of people have come to my community meetings on crime over the summer. Crime is on the increase, local people are worried about burglaries, car theft, anti-social behaviour and violent crime so I’m sure people in Dudley are going to really welcome this. I want to make sure we have more police on the streets and more criminals locked up so my next priority is to fight to make sure we get our fair share of the extra police the government has promised to recruit.
