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.

Martin William Terry

I am standing for election as the next Essex PCC under the banner of;

Zero Tolerance Policing ex Chief

  • Relentlessly pursue more funding for Essex Police  
  • Take a Zero Tolerance approach to policing in Essex
  • Deliver more visible street policing
  • Put victims at the centre of the criminal justice system
  • Give you more opportunities to have your say about policing
  • Protect your local policing by standing up for Officers and Essex Police.
  • Ensure you receive the highest possible standard of service from Essex Police

 My campaign is supported by Mick Thwaites, former Divisional Commander, Head of Mobile Support-Police Operations and Temporary Assistant Chief Constable for Essex Police. Other ex Essex Officers are indicating they will support and work with me so that informed decisions are made.

Having been born, lived and worked most of my life in Essex, an Independent Councillor for 13 years, coupled with my career in local industry, I know the County of Essex well. I understand the make-up of the county in its individual and unique communities, so I will not have a parochial mind set. I am a strategic thinker and I have the determination to fight for what is right for all our towns and villages across Essex.

I believe that the hallmark of any civilised society is community safety, with the cuts imposed by the government and approved by the current PCC Essex citizens are less safe. Recently published figures show crime is up, conviction rates are down. In fact I believe the current bad set of numbers are not accurate, the figures are significantly higher.

Community safety is in my DNA and is under threat; I pledge to defend all of our communities.
