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.

Philip Edward Ross

A vote for Labour is one that will keep us safe on-line, in our homes and on our streets.

We are working with community groups across the county and have put together a detailed manifesto. Our top priorities are as follows:

  • We will appoint a new commissioner for anti-social behaviour who will use a power called the community trigger to make the police, councils and other agencies work together to resolve problems not just pass them on.
  • We will make tackling the supply of drugs to school age children our highest priority, both in disrupting supply and dismantling networks. Children and young people caught up in this are victims.
  • We will ensure that cyber-crime isn’t a specialist crime by training all officers to respond to it and to tackle fraud. We will show young people that we understand the nature of harassment and crime on-line and in social media.
  • We need to get the street-lights turned back on in the evenings to make our streets safe.
  • I will move the Police & Crime Commissioner’s office to Stevenage and Watford to reflect policing priorities.
  • We will setup new community forums with real powers to hold the PCC to account. We promise more public meetings and forums in our first 10 months than the Tories have run in the last 10 years.

Our approach is to build a fresh model of community and neighbourhood policing that focuses on both crime and safety. It is the model which has worked consistently well over the last 150 years and which will also work best in our new digital world. Our plan for Hertfordshire is comprehensive and is designed to deliver a safe and secure Hertfordshire for us all.
