On the 28th January SNP sneaked out plans to cut the hours of unpaid work carried out by criminals by a third.
The number of hours of work completed by offenders on Community Payback Orders (CPOs) will reduce by 35 per cent compared to what was ordered by the court.
And despite the backlog in community sentences due to the pandemic, the SNP froze the budget for it yesterday.
It confirms our long-held suspicion that the SNP want to let even more criminals off the hook.
The SNP are soft on crime. The Scottish Conservatives will always put victims and public safety first.
Midlothian Conservative Councillors are strong advocates of Community Policing Teams and have resisted attempts by by SNP and Labour Councillors to reduce funding for this very important local policing to reduce crime in Midlothian - another example of SNP being soft on crime.
