Our police are the front line tool of government to maintain law and order in the nation. Theirs is not a glamorous role, and is often a thankless task. They are to be honoured for their commitment to upholding law and order.

We will investigate ways to re-empower police to deal with minor misdemeanours instantly and effectively.
