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.

Chris Vince

The Tory record on law and order is criminal. After 10yrs of Tory cuts, our safety is being put at risk, with over 300 fewer Essex police officers patrolling our streets and communities.

Now the Tories want to increase the police section of the Council Tax by nearly 5%, the government have lost over 250,000 police records, and the Tory Home Secretary is asleep on the job.

Our communities need change.

Police funding should come from central government; with tax rises for those who can afford it, not for those already paying the price for Tory failure.

We must be proactive in tackling crime in our communities. Listening to local residents, and doing more to support the victims of crime.

I’ve spent 5yrs speaking to Essex residents about law and order. They tell me how they worry about the rise in violent crime, and lack of police visibility. They feel let down by Tory cuts and want action.

My priorities as your Police Fire and Crime Commissioner would be to

1) Campaign for more funding from this cuts driven Tory government to support our Police and Fire Service’ work with you, in our communities, to fight crime across Essex.

2) Work together with the police federation and the Fire Brigade to support those on the front line.

3) Change the role of the Deputy PFCC to work closely with charities and local groups to tackle violence against women.

4) Develop more effective strategies to fight back against gang violence, knife crime and county lines drug dealing across Essex.

On May 6th, vote for a Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner, who will put you and your priorities first.
