Devon & Cornwall
Brian Carol Greenslade
I have robustly opposed the introduction of PCC’s. I believe this encourages party politics in policing, concentrates too much power in the hands of one person and is costly. However we are where we are.
I am standing because I have considerable experience of working with communities and police & crime issues. A former Chairman of the Police Authority and until recently the Resources Chairman. I am used to large public budgets which routinely end each year with a small surplus. During my time as PA Chairman I led the work which increased Officer numbers from 2,800 to 3,500 and introduced PCSO’s. I am an Accountant by profession.
I have also played a national role as a board member at the Association of Police Authorities which included representing Police Authorities on the board’s of the National Police Air Support & Child Exploitation on line Protection and the Home Office High Level Working Group for Police Finance & Efficiency.
As PCC I plan to start rebuilding Officer numbers and protect funding for PCSO’s. I would also lobby to have the dampening of the Police Grant removed. Community engagement at all levels would be a priority to really understand the diverse communities of the area.
Partnership working with the voluntary sector, public, private and police partners is critical if we are to give the public the visible, effective, responsive and reassuring Police service they need.
Open & transparent decision making by the PCC supported by two part time PCC’s for Cornwall, Isles of Scilly & Devon would be the way I work.
