Norfolk Crime Commissioner Anxious Over Benefits Changes
Stephen Bett has been telling Heart how the introduction of a one-monthly payment could have an affect on crime rates in Norfolk.
Mr Bett has written an open letter in which he warns of ‘catastrophic repercussions for demands for service on police nationally and, particularly, in Norfolk’.
“My worry is that the changes to housing and welfare benefits will result in some people turning to crime in order to bridge the shortfall caused by reductions in the sums they will receive.
“Whilst accepting the Government has to prioritise the tackling of the country’s financial deficit, it must not create a nonsense framework which causes more problems than it solves.
“I have grave concerns over the impact of some of these changes.
“This could have catastrophic repercussions for demands on police nationally and particularly in Norfolk – demands that I can’t possibly fund,” said Mr Bett."
