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.

Steve Turner

Things have to change at Cleveland Police and this is our chance.

I’m running as your Conservative candidate in the upcoming Cleveland Police and Crime Commissioner elections on 6 May.

Our region is on the cusp of a bright and prosperous future. We cannot allow crime to put that at risk. Without strong leadership, that’s what we face.

I’m campaigning to do things better.

The Government is recruiting extra police officers. Cleveland has already recruited 159 and there’s more to come.

As your PCC, I’ll work with Government to get the best deal and set out a plan to cut crime and restore pride in Cleveland Police.

I will:

  • Put more officers on the beat and make sure they have the extra resources to catch criminals.
  • Take tough action to put an end to drug dealing and gang intimidation.
  • Crack down on the blight of anti-social behaviour and make sure repeat offenders work to improve areas as part of their rehab.
  • Better support for victims. Support groups need resources to help victims recover.
  • Prevent and reduce knife and violent crime by increasing stop and search and improving education for young people.
  • Increasing the use of drones, tagging and technology to detect and deter crime.

With this plan, we can make the improvements that Cleveland Police needs.

I believe this is the best way to get Cleveland Police back on track, cut crime and keep residents safe.

This is how we put the pride back into Cleveland Police.
