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.

Policemore: How Policing Will Reclaim Its Soul

  • As an independent candidate I will be free from party political interference:
  • Free to get the Bobby visible again and Back on the Beat.
  • Free to use our policing skills to protect our public.
  • Free to gain better community engagement,
  • And free to increase police morale and hence its effectiveness.

The police service needs to reclaim its identity.  We need to get the Bobby Back on The Beat to reassure and protect the public with their visible presence.  We will return to being the friendly familiar face in our communities, not just a voice in a call centre. They will focus on real crimes that affect you the most – burglary, theft, criminal damage, actual violent and sexual crimes, fraud,  organised crime and gangs.

You deserve a far more visible and engaged police service, with officers serving you and not politicians and their never-ending quest for statistics. By targeting neighbourhood problems, officers will be able to use their Policing skills and local knowledge to resolve these issues. They will be encouraged to use their own initiative and creativity to enforce the law and resolve local problems either by themselves or working with other interested parties.

I served as a frontline officer for 25 years and saw how political interference resulted in a demoralised, disengaged and less efficient Police Service.

With a targeted local approach, we will be able to increase police morale by increasing a sense of achievement, involvement and community belonging. This will increase their effectivity and productivity for the community.

I am offering you a fresh alternative, you deserve it! Let us make it happen together. Let us get the Bobby Back on The Beat.
