Banff & Buchan MSP Stewart Stevenson has welcomed the news that the number of police officers in Grampian has increased by almost 100 since the SNP came to power in 2007. Figures show that in the Grampian police area the number of officers have gone up from 1,374 in the quarter ending March 07 to 1,473 under the latest figures ending in September – an increase of 99 officers.

Commenting, Mr Stevenson said:

“Since the SNP came to power, people across Banff & Buchan have seen a more visible police presence in our communities, helping to drive down crime and make people’s lives safer.

“”The SNP pledged to put 1000 more police officers on Scotland’s Streets, of which our target was to have recruited 450 by March 2009. 440 have already been recruited, meaning that we are well ahead of schedule in delivering on our promise.

“I am delighted that the SNP Government is once again delivering so effectively on our promises and I know that people across Banff & Buchan will welcome the increased police presence on their streets”.
