Election statement:


The public in Staffordshire want a Police Service that is based firmly in the community and is directly accountable to them.  I am firmly committed to those principles.  I am proud of our Police. I will not interfere with the operational independence of the Chief Constable. 

If I become Staffordshire’s Police and Crime Commissioner my priorities will include:

·        Fighting the 20% cut to Staffordshire’s Police budget

·        Taking a hard line against anti-social behaviour by establishing a taskforce to ensure that victims get a rapid response

·        Putting victims before criminals and ensuring that victims get the support they need

·        Taking Domestic Violence seriously

·        Working with local councils and voluntary groups to steer young people away from crime and anti-social behaviour

·        Tackling alcohol misuse and the effect it has on communities

·        Making sure that Staffordshire residents get value for money in their Police Service 

As a local councillor and Staffordshire Police Authority member I know the importance of community safety. Neighbourhood policing and Police Community Support Officers have been a huge success. The Conservative-led government are putting all this at risk. We have already lost 213 officers in Staffordshire, by 2015 this will be as high as 395 fewer officers. 

I am born and bred in Staffordshire.  I know the area and I know what people want in their Police Service.  That is why I am committed to keeping as many bobbies on the beat as possible and why I am taking a strong stance against anti-social behaviour.
