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.

William Morris

Our society is built on the bedrock of integrity and compassion, to secure which, on my watch, our Police Force will deliver law and order through protecting the vulnerable and supporting the values we cherish through:

  • Targeted Zero Tolerance in areas with increasing levels of violence.
  • Community Payback to reduce pressure on the criminal justice system.
  • Greater priority to wildlife and farm crime.
  • Drunk Tanks.
  • Youth Detox.
  • More random vehicle spot checks.
  • Enhanced community engagement.

We have a precious safe haven in Devon and Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly. However, levels of violent crime resulting in injury buck the trend and are increasing, as do levels of rape and family abuse, often alcohol related. On my watch, these levels will be reversed.

We will deliver the best for the South West. There will be no further police station closures and counter services will be restored by training more special constables.

Can this level of policing be sustained in an era of wanton cuts? Yes it can with sufficient vision, energy and vigilance.

As a practicing Christian, I believe in a world in which we each place an equal value on one another, gay or straight, black or white, those of all religions and those of none. Above all else I believe in respect for each other and respect for the precious environment we hold dear.

If you wish to study my policies in detail, they are explained in a series of videos which will be released on my blog during the course of this campaign. I hope you will find them of interest:

I ask to be entrusted with your vote. Vote independent. Vote William Morris. I shall not let you down.
