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.

Barrie Cooper

I  Barrie  Cooper residing in the Cleveland  Police  Area ask you  the residents of Cleveland to elect me as your Police and Crime Commissioner.

I am not tied to any Political Party I am Independent and as such promise to put your needs and the needs of Cleveland Police first without Fear or Favour.

Our Constables take an oath to do their duty with fairness, integrity, diligence and impartiality, upholding human rights and according equal respect to all people.

I share those beliefs having been a Constable for 30 years, during which time I joined the Royal Military Police Reserves. I retired from Policing in 2003 with a Long Service and Good Conduct Medal. I then became the Senior Team Leader within the Out of Hours Doctors Service helping to ensure Doctors arrived safely at patients homes. I volunteered with Cleveland Police Cadets.

I am currently an Independent Ward Councillor in Middlesbrough, Armed Forces Champion, a member of the Police and Crime Commissioners Scrutiny Panel and The Social Secretary for the Cleveland Branch of the National Association of Retired Police Officers so I am up to date with Police matters in Cleveland.

I understand how people can feel estranged from our Constables with Hartlepool not having its own Custody Suite, Public desks being closed at Billingham, Thornaby, Coulby Newham, Eston, South Bank, Redcar Town, Guisborough, Saltburn and Loftus.

I also understand our Chief Constables difficult decisions    on how and  where the Police Funds should be spent to get the best results for our people.

I will listen to your concerns and suggestions regarding how  we  work together to improve our Police Public Relations.
