"I WAS shocked to find out that Avon and Somerset Police closed almost 50,000 cases last year without even identifying a suspect.

Home Office figures reveal that, of the 134,043 offences committed between April 2021 and March 2022, 48,790 were unsolved.

This means a staggering 36 per cent of crimes Avon and Somerset were uninvestigated.
The Government has neglected our police forces for far too long.

These awful figures show criminals are getting away with victimising people on an industrial scale.

This Conservative government love to talk tough on crime, but they can’t even get the basics right.

Liberal Democrats are calling for a return to proper community policing, where officers are visible, trusted and focused on cutting crime.

The Government should give forces the resources they need to make sure that every crime is investigated.

We must reverse years of neglect that have made our communities less safe and let far

Too many criminals get away with it."
