Election statement:

IF ELECTED I will represent all residents with integrity, impartiality and independence. My task is to ensure that West Mercia Police, working with the Partner Agencies, deliver an efficient, effective and coherent service. A service that makes a real difference to all of us.

I have three pledges


  • I will respond to your concerns, and crack down on anti-social behaviour and local crime, with resolute action.
  • You tell me: “Too many crimes go un-investigated. Every crime has an impact. Every crime matters.”  I agree. I shall expect more crimes to be investigated and taken seriously.


  • I shall set one objective: to cut crime. Letting police officers be police officers, not stuck behind a desk.
  • I will demand joined-up thinking and true, action-orientated, partnership from all the agencies involved.


  • Local Policing is my top priority and I will do my utmost to support current levels of Community Support Officers.
  • I will ensure that Police and Partner Agencies safeguard, support and protect vulnerable people in our communities and treat victims of crime as people, not just a number.


I am not a career politician. I have a record of achievement, building and managing a wide range of successful businesses.

 I also give time and energy to improving our local community. I live and farm with my wife Julia in Herefordshire.

  • I have an excellent track record of forging and sustaining effective partnerships. I have successfully chaired two public/private sector partnerships.
  • As a former Army Officer, with three tours of Northern Ireland, I have experience of working with the Police in an intelligence role.
