Election statement:

Colm McCabe – Welsh Conservative Police and Crime Commissioner

Candidate for North Wales

Having left his native Ireland in his early twenties, Colm is a long

standing resident of Summerhill, Wrexham and is now a Welsh Citizen.

He is married to Dawn, from California, and they have two sons, Leo(4)

and Fionn(2).

Colm served as a Special Constable with the North Wales Police and was

appointed Chief Officer, Special Constabulary in 2011.

Colm is a founder of Empowering Youth Foundation, a charity dedicated

to teaching life skills and values to young people through

participation in sport.

Colm’s first policing priority is to tackle the scourge that is the

drug culture on communities across North Wales. Colm has a zero

tolerance approach to drug use, sale and supply and commits to

ensuring that more resources will be dedicated to the fight against

drugs to take drug dealers off our streets and out of our communities.

If elected Colm is committed to introducing targeted patrols in areas

where instances of anti social behaviour are prevalent.

We must recognise the mistakes of the past when it comes to reckless

and dangerous driving. Road use and driver behaviour is something that

affects every citizen in North Wales; therefore it must be a priority

for the Police.

Disorderly and rowdy behaviour in the early hours of the morning after

licence premises are closed is a problem right across north Wales and

I am committed to tackling this problem.

Colm is committed to leading and supporting the excellent work North

Wales Police Officers do day and night to ensure that North Wales is a

safer place for all our citizens.
