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.

Jeff Cuthbert

It has been a privilege to serve as your Police and Crime Commissioner for Gwent since 2016. That is why I’m asking you for a second term because I want to continue our work to make Gwent a safe place to live and work.

A lot has already been done. Since 2016 we’ve appointed about 170 additional Officers and we have plans for more. Together with the Welsh Government’s 101 Community Support Officers, we are building strong neighbourhood policing teams.

I want to develop further the support that we provide for victims of crime, and especially victims of serious violence and domestic abuse. We will continue to invest in these support services.
Our partnership work is highly commended, and rightly so. Whether we’re working with the NHS, or local government, or the voluntary sector, we’re stronger by pooling our resources.

No part of Gwent should feel isolated or ignored. Community cohesion is an important part of my Policing and Crime Plan and will remain so. Every part of Gwent, and each community within Gwent, will be treated fairly and equally. That’s true whether we’re talking about wards, urban and rural areas; or different ethnic and cultural groups.

Similarly, every citizen of Gwent must receive equal treatment under the law and be entitled to respect and personal security.

It’s important to invest in our future citizens. That’s why we created the Mini Police/Heddlu Bach. This innovative scheme encourages primary school children to take a positive interest in their communities and help them to be the good adult citizens of the future.

I want to be able to continue this work for another term but I need your support.
