Ross Kemp visited Enfield North to support Joan Ryan’s campaign to increase the number of police officers on Enfield’s streets.
I was delighted that actor, author and BAFTA award-winning investigative journalist Ross Kemp visited Enfield North to support my campaign to increase the number of police officers on Enfield’s streets and to meet the ‘We Love Our Highways’ community group, to talk about the best ways to combat knife crime.
As an acclaimed documentary maker, who won a British Academy of Film and Television Arts Award (BAFTA) for his series ‘Ross Kemp on Gangs’, Ross provided an insight into the scourge of knife crime, at a time when Enfield has been hit by a spate of 11 stabbings in the past two months, three of them fatal.
He understands that if you can’t catch them, you can’t sentence them, so I was very pleased he visited our community to show his support for my community campaign to get more bobbies on the beat to help fight knife crime.
I’ve already secured a commitment from the Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, to bring back 21 police officers onto Enfield’s streets this year and, if I am re-elected on Thursday 8 June, I will continue to campaign to restore all the police cut from our borough under a Tory government.
