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.

Stephen Graham Mold

As PFCC I always put our communities, urban and rural, at the heart of my priorities for both Police and Fire services.  Since 2016 I have invested in

  • 200 additional police officers, with 130 more in the next 2 years
  • Neighbourhood policing, domestic burglary, ANPR cameras and rural crime
  • Dedicated Police Dog team
  • Additional Firefighters and appliances
  • Combined, fit for purpose buildings for Police and Fire, maximising investment for the front line
  • Local Victims service to support all victims and witnesses of crime
  • Youth Services, Domestic Abuse and mental health support services

I have also

  • Negotiated £2m additional funding for Fire service
  • Introduced community grants and sponsored PCSO schemes
  • Supported Public Health, NHS and EMAS during the pandemic
  • Reduced office costs
  • Secured £12million additional grant funding for community safety, early intervention and young people
  • Key achievements recognised nationally by HMICFRS
  • Secured Government commitment to funding review in next term

Much has been achieved but there is more to do. I have clear plans to make Northamptonshire EVEN safer.

I intend to:

  • Reach record levels of police officers and firefighters by 2023 – 330 extra police officers and 32 additional firefighters
  • Build on significant reductions in domestic burglary and increase focus on robbery, vehicle crime, crime prevention, anti-social behaviour and fly-tipping
  • Reduce harm from domestic abuse and sexual violence by pursuing perpetrators, supporting victims and increasing rehabilitation and prevention programmes
  • Target gangs, reduce child and sexual exploitation, slavery and trafficking through increased detection and more support to victims
  • Increase neighbourhood policing with named local officers in all rural and urban communities
  • Continue to improve Fire response times and build on home safety prevention work
