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 Morris

We need a police force to protect us against those who seek to steal, injure and defraud us. The police should understand and enforce the few laws directed at our protection but not squander precious resources on the woke agenda. Our police need the goodwill of the public for the long term, and this should not be risked for short term expediency. We must feel we can turn to the police for protection, not distrust them as they get drawn into coercive action.

Our justice system has become gridlocked as cases build up faster than they can be processed. Many cases do not come to court to be judged because of the difficulty in preparing a strong case. This does not give true justice to either a person accused but not acquitted or a victim who has no closure.

My priorities are to:

  • Tackle crime against the self employed and small local business.
  • Get constables back on the beat, developing strong relationships with the people in their care.
  • Give the police confidence in applying the laws most needed to carry out our priorities.
  • Clarify the relations and boundaries within the justice system to establish accountability.

I would address the issue of police numbers by concentrating on retaining experienced officers. I would support the Chief Constable in finding practical ways to improve job satisfaction.

I would target commissioning on ‘building up’ not ‘propping up’ young people finding their way into adult life. I  would commission local people, individually and in groups, to lead them in projects to discover and develop talents and to showcase achievement in any area including sport, arts, media, building, administration etc
