I am passionate about our county. This is where I worked, where my parents live, where I met and married my wife, where my children were born and go to school and where I have many friends.
I am an ex senior police officer having served 10 years in the Met and 20 years in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough in both uniformed and detective roles. I have dedicated my life to keeping you and your family safe. As a 16-year-old schoolboy at my interview to become a police cadet, I was asked “Why do you want to be a police officer?” I replied I wanted to catch criminals, help victims and keep people safe. My motivation to be your PCC remains the same.
After retiring from the force, I became a senior official at the Association of Police and Crime Commissioners (APCC) in Westminster – the body helping PCCs to develop policy positions and influence change in the criminal justice system.
The most important job of a PCC is to listen to the concerns of local communities and businesses and act upon them. I have done just that and developed a straightforward plan to cut crime in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough:
I have the vital experience required to be a PCC, please support me in keeping all our communities safe.
