Summary: 

Mr Kirkham, who was with the Met Police from 1981 to 2002, revealed the harrowing reality of police cuts.  He said that there are many factors outside the immediate control of the police which contribute to the increase in crime, namely cuts to other authorities, and police are left with the "symptoms of all the social falling apart". Mr Kirkham: "The only thing police have got, once they get to the point of kids carrying knives, is stop and search, and the government's been beating the police up constantly over the last few years saying 'don't do stop and search'. "Stop and search has plummeted, knife crime has gone up, we all knew it was going to happen, we've been warned about it, the government, and Theresa May personally, has not listened. "In fact, quite the contrary, she's told us we're crying wolf and we're scaremongering." He added: "We haven't got enough cops to actually put people on the street, that's the main problem really, the streets have been lost. And I would put it as strongly as that.
