Did the Conservative Party cut police numbers for economic reasons, and why would a 'conservative' party want less law & order?

Update:

Please no Americans unless you know about UK politics

    I imagine it was due to the budget cuts and austerity policies implemented by the Cameron administration. Local councils had to dramatically cut services in order to balance their books and I assume police numbers were a part of this. I could be wrong.

    Their claim when they embarked on cutting police and other local authority budgets year on year was that these austerity savings could be achieved through greater efficiency. So now, for example, there are a third less police officers in boroughs where stabbings and the crime they are associated with are most prevalent. And no youth services that used to help to occupy the youths involved in these crimes.

    Cons want to give the rich tax cuts more than anything else.

    No. You are uninformed on that subject, do more research.

    Decisions like that are generally left up to city mayors.

    I would think conservative want more law and order to enforce existing laws. Let's start with criminal aliens.
