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.

Kahina Suzanna Bouhassane

Despite the hard work of many officers, policing is broken in Sussex. Over 10 years of Tory leadership and austerity has left a system that is not working – especially for women, Black and Minority Ethnic people and rural communities. Crimes are going uninvestigated and it is our local community that suffers. I am speaking up for residents that are not being heard.

We need a Police and Crime Commissioner who will stand up to the Conservative government and demand better for our residents, one who will not implement government cuts to vital services without protest. We need tough justice that puts victims first: Restorative Justice.

I will:

  • Integrate police forces more closely with the communities they serve by creating new community liaison and equality officers to work on positive relations and by putting more police on the beat.
  • Review hiring practices to ensure a diverse police force, which reflects the community it serves.
  • Take steps to address and correct inequality in the Sussex police force by listening to the local community on issues of race, gender and geography and implementing appropriate measures.
  • Invest in youth services and centres, to help turn at-risk children away from crime.
  • Make misogyny a hate crime.
  • End the war on drugs, which has trapped hundreds of thousands of people into lives of crime and treat drug addiction as a health condition, not a crime.

Greens are the only party providing a real opposition to the Conservative government. Vote for me, Kahina Bouhassane, on May 6th, and let’s make Sussex Police a police for the people.
