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.

Matthew James Randolph

I have decided that it is necessary to stand as an independent candidate for the role of police and crime commissioner for Gloucestershire.

OUR constabulary is no longer a police service and now call themselves “THE FORCE” we do not pay for a force that takes instructions from OUR government we pay OUR constabulary to protect the public by investigating and detecting crimes, this is a duty our constabulary seem to have forgotten.

The duty of the police is to investigate all crimes independently that are reported to them, this is clearly not happening in Gloucestershire, OUR police fail to investigate certain crimes that are reported to them, depending on who committed them.

Victims are left weeks and even months for the police to attend and take statements, but always have enough staff to collect fines from motorists who may drive a few miles over the speed limits, is this what we really want from OUR police service.

As an independent commissioner I will not hide from the important issues that need addressing, I am the only candidate who will speak up for the people and ensure the issues you raise are fully investigated and hold OUR constabulary accountable if they fail in their duty.

Vote for Matthew Randolph and you will have an INDEPENDENT voice for the people of Gloucestershire.
