All too often local residents feel left behind, with little in the way of visible policing, particularly in our most rural areas. Local communities end up keeping watch for suspicious vehicles, nervous about the fate of vital equipment.
It’s not good enough, and it needs to change – people have to be able to feel safe in their own communities.
As a proven manager, consultant and daughter of a former police officer, I’m the right person to hold Cumbria police to account.
I will fight and tooth and nail to keep our communities safe, by introducing tried and tested measures from across the country and working with local communities to help us tackle big issues like anti-social behaviour and rural crime.
My main priorities are:
Government promises of extra funding for police services have contained a lot of smoke and mirrors recently, with council tax increases being claimed as Government investment in the police service.
I will keep pressing for Cumbria to get the funding it needs and deserves, but I’ll also lead by example and make sure the Office of the PCC spends its budget wisely.
With your support on 6th May, I’ll make sure we have a police force that will keep Cumbria safe.
