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.

Ben Adams

Dear resident, Staffordshire Police and Fire & Rescue services are both judged ‘Good’ by Her Majesty’s Inspectors. Our crime levels are low and the £250 million budget is well managed, with low council tax, thanks to 8 years of careful oversight by our current Conservative commissioner.

If elected as your Police, Fire & Crime Commissioner I plan to recruit 250 more police officers and to make sure that our frontline teams have the workforce, support and technology that they need to keep reducing crime and anti-social behaviour. I will invest in services to prevent fires and accidents, to support victims and to tackle addiction and domestic violence.

I will use my experience of helping organisations to run efficiently and manage change. I will use my 15 years of political experience as a Lichfield District, Staffordshire County Councillor and twice Parliamentary candidate in Stoke-on-Trent to bring our councils, health authorities, businesses and schools together to tackle the underlying causes of crime.

Staffordshire is a big place so the local Police and Fire & Rescue Plans that I will prepare, in consultation with you, will address our mix of rural and urban challenges and I aim to strengthen our relationships with neighbouring forces to safeguard our borders and road network.

Delivering excellent Police and Fire & Rescue Services will always be the responsibility of the Chief Constable and Chief Fire Officer so who you vote for as Commissioner, to recruit to these positions, to manage the finances and to hold the services to account on your behalf matters.

Please vote for me on Thursday 6th May so I can help to keep Staffordshire safe.
