Election statement:

As your Labour Police and Crime Commissioner I promise to listen to your needs, seek out the concerns of all and tackle them. I worked as a police officer for over 30 years, serving in Police Forces across the region including Durham and I’ve seen first-hand how neighbourhood policing can improve communities.

People across County Durham and Darlington have told me how concerned they are that officers are being withdrawn from their communities. I will resist the Tory led Government cuts which have already cost 140 officers and 200 police staff. Instead I will ensure that we maintain neighbourhood policing at current levels and maintain a mix of police officers and PCSOs.

I will resist the drive for privatisation of your police service, ensuring that policing remains for people and not for profit. I will seek to develop imaginative solutions to ensure that public services continue to be delivered by public sector employees.

I will work tirelessly to protect all members of our community, but especially the weak and the vulnerable. I will work with the victims and witnesses to crime so that we can improve our service to them. I will tackle domestic violence which makes up one third of all violent crime. I shall ensure that through me our communities have a voice.

I will address anti-social behaviour, and drug and alcohol related problems, and work with the Police and partners to ensure a coordinated response in tackling and reducing crime.

County Durham and Darlington deserves a police service that protects our communities and fights crime. If you elect me as your Labour Police & Crime Commissioner this is exactly what you will get.
