Police and crime commissioners

Police and crime commissioners are elected by the public to ensure the policing needs of communities are met as effectively as possible and to oversee how crime is tackled in your police force area.

Sue Mountstevens

In 2012 you elected me as your PCC with 125,000 votes, for which I thank you whole-heartedly. It has been a privilege to serve you.

As an independent I’m determined that party politics have no place in policing. The Police are there to keep us safe. The Police belong to you, not to political ideologies, nor career politicians.

I will continue to protect residents and Police from political interference, without fear or favour – answerable only to residents of Avon and Somerset.

Policing is complex. Being your PCC for over 3 years, leading a major local business, plus years as a magistrate, uniquely qualify me to provide managerial skills and leadership to deliver the Police Service we all deserve.

Government cuts of £60m meant fewer police officers – with further savings to come. Wise prioritisation, partnerships and technology is the way forward.

With the Chief Constable, tackling the rise of crimes against our most vulnerable will be a priority.

If you choose me to be your PCC again, I shall continue to:

  • Protect residents and police from political interference. Keeping Politics out of Policing
  • Prevent crime so you can be safe and feel safe
  • Listen and be your voice: working with the Chief Constable for better policing
  • Champion Police Officers, PCSO’s and Special Constables in your Neighbourhood
  • Be a fierce advocate for victims
  • Work with partners to make justice more accessible, faster, simpler
  • Ensure your money is spent efficiently, effectively, wisely


*Over 25,000 victims supported by Lighthouse. *Anti-social behaviour reduced. *Reporting of domestic and sexual violent crimes increased by 50% reflecting more confidence. *All-time low in burglaries in 2014 with increased crime prevention. *Road safety: more investment in education and enforcement resulting in fewer killed/seriously injured.
