Election statement:

 I am passionate that the Commissioner should be INDEPENDENT and therefore able to speak and represent all the people of County Durham and Darlington without fear or favour of political parties, trade unions, business or other organisations. A VOTE FOR ME WILL KEEP POLITICS OUT OF LOCAL POLICING.

LET ME BE YOUR VOICE

My pledges to you are:

  • Increase the arrest and conviction rates
  • Real support for victims
  • The police will be available when and where needed
  • Ensuring neighbourhood policing works
  • Safer Streets
  • Make best use of funding for frontline services
  • Pioneer better ways of working

ZERO TOLERANCE FOR CRIMINALS

I will also ensure that your priorities will be delivered.

 They could focus on:

  • Anti-social behaviour
  • Drug and alcohol abuse
  • Protecting vulnerable people
  • Burglary
  • Vehicle Crime
  • Drug trafficking
  • Violent crime

“ WE WILL FIGHT CRIME AND SUPPORT VICTIMS”

I have lived and worked in the Police Force area for more than 40 years and have a very successful track record of Leadership with vision, motivation and delivery as the former Chief Executive of Durham County Council, in economic regeneration and Inward Investment and in my present role as the Chairman of the Newcastle Upon Tyne Hospitals Foundation Trust which runs the Freeman and RVI. With these proven skills I relish carrying out the role of Commissioner and ensuring that our Police Force is the best in the country and one we will all be proud of

A vote for me will ensure that you get a Police Force working for law-abiding people, a Commissioner who will continually engage with you and empower local communities and will send a message out that the Commissioner has ZERO TOLERANCE FOR CRIMINALS

LET ME BE YOUR VOICE
