I’m passionate about improving the accountability, inclusivity, and environmental impact of Devon & Cornwall Police (D&CP.) If elected, I’d want our Chief Constable to work on the following:
Organise monthly “Listening Forums” for local people, three in each city: Truro, Plymouth and Exeter.
People in these three groups are over-represented amongst victims of certain crimes.
Listening Forums would allow people to raise concerns and/or questions with a senior police officer. Conversations would be facilitated using the NHS model of Schwartz Rounds, enabling police to better understand issues affecting us, the people that they serve.
As PCC, I’d examine cases of proven harassment of officers or staff, where protected characteristics were a contributory factor.
I’ve previously worked as Training Officer for D&CP. This provided insights into the many strengths and some weaknesses of the Force.
