The Havering Daily is today launching its ‘Back the Bobbies’ campaign supporting our police.
We are asking the community to come together and support those who support us.
Assaults on officers have recently risen by 40% and now is the time to support our bobby.
Local Members of Parliament, Council Leaders and members of the GLA have come out to support the police during these challenging times.
The Havering Daily has designed a poster for the community to print out and put in visible places to show your support for our police.

Please join our campaign to ‘Back our Bobbies’.
Romford MP Andrew Rosindell said:
“Our police force do one of the hardest jobs in our community. The challenges they face on a daily basis is quite astounding. I have been out with the police on numerous occasions to witness first hand the incredible job they do.
“I fully support our police and have respect for the hard work they do in our community to keep us all safe.”
Dagenham and Rainham MP Jon Cruddas said:
“The police have faced unprecedented pressure over the last few months to keep us safe in these uncertain times. I am in regular communications with the Borough Commander regarding Covid 19 enforcement and some serious crimes which have taken place recently.
“The Met are vastly overstretched at the moment and deserve our support.”
Havering’s Leader of the Council, Councillor Damian White said:
“Police officers across our borough work incredibly hard to keep the residents of Havering safe. Having been out with officers here locally I have witnessed just how incredibly challenging their job is and what an incredible job they do.
“They have my full support and thanks and it is our duty to help support them when we can.”
Conservative GLA member for Havering and Redbridge Keith Prince said:
“I am always happy to stand up and support our police. The current Mayor seems to go missing when the time comes to come out and support our police and sends mixed messages. We must unite to support them and protect them as they protect us.
“You cannot say every police officer is racist that is a ridiculous thing to say. I know police officers on all levels and know just how hard they work.”
Please support our ‘Back the Bobbies’ campaign and send us pictures of your posts for us to feature.
