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.

Roy Thomas Williams

Roy Williams was born in the West Midlands and has lived in the South of England since the early 1980’s. Roy is a retired Metropolitan Police Inspector with a wealth of operational policing experience gained in some of the busiest areas of South London. He is concerned of late at the nature and style of policing being delivered by all police forces and will seek to bring some common sense, integrity and proportionality back if elected. Given the huge demands on the modern police force Roy will seek to bring clarity to what should be policing priorities and in which areas police should perhaps be acting in more of an advisory capacity. He does not believe for example, that the police should be used as the enforcement arm of the NHS. He is an English Constitutionalist standing for the people’s inalienable fundamental constitutional rights: The right to free assembly and free speech, the right to earn a living and the right to adequately protect oneself and one’s property without interference from the State. Imagine how differently things may have played out if Sarah Everard had been in possession of a noxious spray to defend herself. Roy is standing as an independent candidate, free of political party influence, and he believes that his policing experience will allow for a much more critical eye to be cast over police activity than we have seen so far across the country. He is also keen to take responsibility for and provide oversight over the police complaints system, which in his experience forces are unable to adequately manage with integrity. A review of previous contentious cases may also be considered where appropriate.
