Patel added: “As Home Secretary at this defining moment in our country’s history, I have a particular responsibility when it comes to taking back control."
She went on to reveal her intention to put a £10 million fund towards equipping 60 per cent of police officers with tasers, and an additional £20 million investment to aid in identifying and breaking down drugs gangs across county lines.
Patel said the party was taking “its rightful place as the Party of Law and Order in Britain once again”.
As we renew our place as the party of law and order in Britain, let the message go out from this hall today: To the British people - we hear you.
To the police service: We back you.
And to the criminals, I simply say this: We are coming after you.
