Police and crime commissioners

Police and crime commissioners are elected by the public to ensure the policing needs of communities are met as effectively as possible and to oversee how crime is tackled in your police force area.

Anne-Marie Curry

  • Back me to be the next Police and Crime Commissioner so that I can be an experienced voice fighting for you.
  • Please use your first preference vote to elect me and I will work to improve the police and associated services for everyone. My key role will be to come out into the community regularly and listen to what you have to say about the local police service and how they tackle crime and anti-social behaviour affecting our lives.
  • I have been a Lib Dem councillor for over 12 years and have worked very closely with the local police. Since the position of PCC was created, I have taken every opportunity to ask questions on improvement and better communications with the public.
  • Two of my priorities will be to cut re-offending rates and to clamp down on anti-social behaviour that blights many of our communities. As a Councillor I find most of my complaints are about anti-social behaviour and I am sure it is the same in many neighbourhoods across the Force area. I will look to tackle some of the issues that lead to anti-social behaviour because I want communities to feel safer and free from harassment.
  • I will aim to build a better working relationship with the Health Service to prevent crime, as many calls to the police are better dealt with by Health or Social Services. Many offenders use crime as a cry for help.
  • I will work to confront the issues of delay in the justice system. Perpetrators and victims alike are let down with the very long delays to get due process.
  • Remember, please make me your first preference. First and second preferences are going to be important in this election!
