  • all right.

  • I want to go and talk about some really important things in this manifesto.

  • And it's important to me because it's about keeping our streets safe.

  • And uh again, there's 50 pages of detailed, detailed policy here that's going to change your life in the next 24 months.

  • It really will, it will change the amount of money you make.

  • It will change how safe you are.

  • And if your family is safe, if your friends are safe, it will change how much you pay for housing, it'll change how much you pay for transport.

  • This is real things that are going to affect you.

  • You have to take ownership of this.

  • And what I want to point out today is how I'm going to make London safe.

  • And there are two parts to this narrative and I want to talk about part one and this comes directly from the manifesto.

  • And this is part of my whole section here about tackling the crime epidemic.

  • And you're gonna see this slide go up on the screen right now and this is how we start 10,000 new police, but it's better trained and a digitized police force.

  • And so many of the headlines you've seen in 2000 and 2021 focused on violent crime, something that every londoner is outraged by.

  • Since the present mayor came to power.

  • London crime figures, especially violent violent crime have gone up year after year after year.

  • And now if you look at 2021 murder rates are at a three year high in the capital.

  • Can you imagine that one of the most prosperous cities in the world And we've got teenagers getting stabbed to death on our streets.

  • It's unacceptable.

  • But it's something that mayor hasn't even mentioned as he's been out there campaigning for your vote on May six.

  • It's curious to me how he hasn't mentioned one of his biggest failures.

  • And so I want to show you some more slides here of what I want to do and that is those policing.

  • But proper policing does not mean cheap policing.

  • And that's why I've costed this down to the pound and I'm going to hire and train 10,000 extra staff, which is going to cost £300 million pounds in the first year, £300 million pounds it's gonna cost per year to have these police officers trained.

  • And again, this is something no other candidate talks about.

  • They throw out numbers, but they don't know how we're gonna pay for this and how we're gonna pay for this is through something called an infrastructure levy.

  • And we're driving right now, right around through Canary Wharf, where I see massive high rise buildings all around me.

  • Some are residential, some are bank buildings where I used to work.

  • Uh, some are incredible retail outlets and they've all been placed here.

  • Thanks to transport for London who created the jubilee line extension and made it very easy to get out here to these stations here in Greenwich and right by the 02 Arena and yet there's prosperity around me here and yet the TFL is going bankrupt and we don't have enough police officers on the street.

  • That isn't right in my book.

  • And that's why we created the infrastructure levy and that's going to levy a 3% charge on all of these developments here That are located within 500 to 1000 m of a transport for London stop.

  • And all I'm saying is this if your property has gone up more in value than the average of London and again, I don't want to punish you for properties going up, but if it's gone up that extra bit, thanks to TFl, I want you to kick back 3% of those gains.

  • Its modest but it's enough to raise billions of pounds per year that we're gonna put directly into our police officers Now make sure you understand what I said right here because this will be ours probably before one of the other candidates for mayor copies this policy.

  • They're very good at co opting our policies.

  • Um, so remember this idea came from us because again, I've had high level officials behind the scenes talking to me about this.

  • We've actually spoke with developers about this levy and I'll be honest, they're not happy about it, but they know that it's coming because they know they need to pay their part and we can take this money and invest in real things that will make our streets safer.

  • And so again, I want to put up another slide here and show you about what we're gonna do here a bit more when it comes to the police.

  • And that's the digitization of police.

  • And this is going to bring about a billion pounds in savings when we simply digitize the police.

  • And that's better technology to help those front line officers process crime on the streets.

  • Now.

  • You might wonder how does brian Rose knows so much about policing.

  • And that's why I'm going to talk to you about that.

  • How do I know exactly what a frontline officer spends?

  • How do I know he spends between or she spends one third to one half of their time writing out paperwork to process a crime.

  • I know that because I spend time on the phone with senior members of the police and they've told me BRian, if you solve this problem, this will save us £100 million per year.

  • And I also know this because recently I was stopped by the city of London police when they tried to ban me from campaigning and they spent about two hours writing out my ticket to try to ban me from campaigning, which was of course not not correct, but I can already see it in my own real time.

  • How when we digitize these processes are police can work better.

  • And I just want to say one thing I support the police.

  • They have a very difficult job.

  • Uh, those city of London police officers to stop me that day.

  • That was a political decision.

  • It was something that was out of their control.

  • That was obviously coming from City Hall because they were concerned about our independent ideas.

  • And I speak with people in the streets, a lot of teenagers that say, yeah, we don't think more police is the right answer.

  • And I say, I understand you're frustrated with the police, but it's not because they're bad people.

  • It's because they don't have enough funding.

  • They're not properly trained and they're not digitized.

  • I'm gonna change all that.

  • And I'm gonna make sure those police training the communities with you that they have two days per month where they can train themselves and that they're fully digitized, which is going to give them more time to police properly.

  • We're also going to have a police force that represents the communities.

  • That means the ethnicities, the races, the religions and officers that are located from the community.

  • That means if you're in Croydon, you're being policed by an officer from Croydon.

  • That makes a big difference.

  • And again, I know these things because I spoke with citizens on the street and I want to talk about a couple more things when it comes to digitizing the police.

  • There are four ways of doing this and I'll show this with a slide I think here right now, and that goes in to these four pieces, which is streamlining the reporting of crime online and improving police efficiency, making the data available through all agencies, preventing information from falling through gaps in the system.

  • We've seen this happen even in the past few months in London 3rd, reducing the non digital administration and repurposing, improving their efficiency and finally providing transport transparency through social media to move beyond this press release culture which we see having time and time again.

  • This is what digitalization is gonna help with us.

  • And finally, I just want to highlight our victims bill of rights.

  • This is important, important ideas that we're putting out here And it means that the victim is entitled to four things information, protection, participation, and restitution.

  • And this will allow all victims a really a completion process to where they can finally resolve when they are a victim of a crime.

  • And something that might surprise you.

  • This is something that the police want themselves.

  • They think the victims deserve this and they deserve this cycle of completion with something happens to someone on the streets.

  • And again, I spoke with people in the communities, I've spoken with victims of knife crime, I've spoken with the Lives, not knives charity down in Croydon, our friend ELISA down there and I spoke to them when they're frustrated about stop and search.

  • And I spoke with the Metropolitan Police and I found solutions to where everyone wins.

  • And we couldn't be more excited about sharing those.

  • Yeah.

all right.
