‘Give a Day to Policing’ – On Patrol with South Wales Police

One of my priorities since being elected has been to campaign for more funding and specifically, additional capital city funding (like London receives) for our Police. I’ve taken part in the ‘Give A Day To Policing’ campaign, a national campaign to get MPs to shadow local police to understand more about what they do and the challenges they face. I’ve spent …
