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.

Andrew Snowden

On 6th May, you have the opportunity to vote to crack down on criminal reoffenders, invest in front line policing and give more power to Lancashire’s PCSOs to tackle antisocial behaviour.

Throughout this pandemic our front-line police officers, supported by the Constabulary as a whole, have done amazing work in keeping our communities as safe as they can in difficult times. As we move on from the pandemic, with our world-leading vaccination programme paving the way, I want to  lead the charge against crime in Lancashire.

I am standing as your Conservative candidate in this vital election. It matters who’s in charge. The Commissioner sets the multi-million pound police budgets, agrees the priorities for policing and holds the force to account for delivering against those, for the benefit of all residents across Lancashire.

I will deliver a joined up approach to Lancashire policing. I will work nationally with our MPs and government ministers to ensure we have the resources and powers we need to fight crime, and ensure the budgets and priorities are set according to our priorities for keeping Lancashire safe. The Government is investing more into policing- a vote for me is a vote to ensure a strong, joined up approach to ensure Lancashire gets the best out of this investment.

If you want to see that change, you have to vote for it. So, I am asking that you use your vote to elect me to deliver the changes we all want to see. Cracking down on reoffending. More powers for PCSOs. More officers on the front lines. And an end to the retreat from rural policing.

Yours Sincerely,

Andrew Snowden
