Election statement:

 

This election will see major change in how policing in Suffolk is directed and planned.  Policing has a significant impact on all sections of our community, young and old alike.

I believe that :

- the people of Suffolk should have an independent Commissioner who will not be “handcuffed” to any political party 

- it is crucial we all use our vote 

Having lived and worked here for the majority of my life, I understand Suffolk well.  I have worked as chief executive of both broadcasting and health companies for more than 20 years, with corporate responsibility for good governance and the delivery of services scrutinised by independent monitors.  As chair of a Suffolk mental health charity, governor of a major high school and a grant board member of Help an East Coast Child in Lowestoft, I have widened my understanding of the needs of the county.   

 I am committed to :

- constantly listening to the needs of individuals, groups and organisations and ensuring their priorities are reflected in the police plan, building on the work of the Suffolk Police Authority 

- ensuring that there is no hiding place in Suffolk for criminals by prioritising the number of front-line police officers

- ensuring strong partnership working produces measurable positive outcomes across the wider criminal justice  system 

- an improved service for victims of crime 

- being a catalyst for innovation and reform 

 I will not make promises that I cannot implement.  I will not shrink from making difficult decisions.  I will make decisions for the people of Suffolk, free from political influence and pressure.
