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.

Desmond Gustavus Jaddoo

We are in the season of change and that we do require strategic and directional leadership when it comes to building bridges between the Community and The Police.

I am a husband, a father, a grandfather; being born in Birmingham of parents that were of the Windrush Generation from Jamaica.

Policing by consent is only effective when trust and confidence; communities are the police and the police the community. Responsibility must be taken by the Police and Crime Commissioner not just to deliver a police and crime plan, not just manage an office, not just to set a budget but also to hold the Chief Constable to account in the delivery of a robust fair and just Police service that serves all the people of the West Midlands who are the ultimate stakeholders.

This has been borne out my work on dealing with for example:

Police Complaints.

Holding the Police to account.

Serving on various Police & Community panels.

Deaths following Police contact.

Civic Engagement.

Working on initiatives such as:

Weapons surrender.

School programmes.

Bleed Control.

Outreach on street violence by way of public forums.

Being a Bishop and a campaigner for many years in terms of equality and social justice, I am of the firm belief that we do require greater Community relations in terms of Policing through dialogue and partnership.

It is my pledge to tackle issues head-on constructing tangible partnerships between the Police and the community which includes all seven local authority areas. The time has come to stop pointing fingers and offer responsible leadership, which I am prepared to deliver.
