In wake of the London riots, UK Prime Minister David Cameron has said that there will be extra policemen to man and patrol the riot-hit areas in London. The number has been increased to over 16, 000. Prior to Tuesday, the policemen in London were 6, 000.
Meanwhile, the London police is arresting people responsible for violence, breaking law and order and looting in the rioting areas. Over 800 people have been arrested while 279 have been charged with these crimes.
The Prime Minister David Cameron has said that, “We will not do anything that will reduce the amount of visible policing on our streets.”
While many areas of businesses chose to shut shop in violence hit areas, many communities also saw people organizing self-security to man their properties.
