Quite simply, I believe in PUBLIC before POLITICS.
In 2010 we had 1340 officers (HMIC). Now we have 1315 (PFCC Website 20/3/21). That’s 25 less. We are paying more for less and the population has obviously increased. I’m no mathematician but I know that’s really bad.
From 2016-19 the force went from passing, to failing the 3 key areas of Inspection. The primary task of the Police Commissioner is to ensure the ‘Effectiveness, Efficiency & Legitimacy’ of the force on our behalf. We were failed. I will take that task seriously. I will give the force what it needs to succeed and make you and I proud.
2020-21 the PFCC office took an eye watering 7.18 million of the police/Fire budget and employs 80 staff (4/2/21 PFCC document and website)
The old Police Authority that used to oversee the police, spent only £700,000 thousand & had only 7 staff.
I will give as much of the Commissioners money to the frontline of Policing and Firefighting as I can.
I am Northampton born and bred. I was a national & international policing consultant and am now an international business woman. I am not using this role as a stepping stone to higher office or to be an M.P. I therefore have no hidden agenda, other than the safety of the people of Northamptonshire.
Crime fighting; Domestic violence; Women’s safety; Community policing; Fly tipping; Dog Thefts & Rural crime and finally, putting more officers on our streets and in our fire stations.
That is where our true safety lies.
