Election statement:

Sussex needs a Police & Crime Commissioner with wide experience of Criminal Justice.  Godfrey Daniel was a Member of the Sussex Police Authority for over 7 years and a member of the Sussex Probation Board for 6 years.  He has been a magistrate since 1989.  He wants to “Cut Crime not Police”.

His family home has been in Hastings for the last 26 years, after moving from Frant (near Wadhurst).  He studied at Sussex University for 4 years, living in and around the Brighton & Hove area.

Godfrey has had a successful career in teaching, fostering, residential social work and local government.  He is a Hastings Borough Councillor (since 1994) and an East Sussex County Councillor (since 1997).  He is the Chair of Planning on both those Councils.  He is also involved in the mental health field as an Associate Hospital Manager for Sussex Partnership Trust.  He tries to find time to sing in choirs and supports various musical societies.

Godfrey believes that Sussex Police must work closely with the local community to sustain and enhance neighbourhood policing and dealing effectively with antisocial behaviour.  His priorities include reducing domestic violence, hate crime, alcohol and drugs issues.

He strongly opposes moves to privatise police services (eg G4S) and cuts to policing.

Godfrey was the Lead Member for Volunteers on the Police Authority, and looks forward to working closely with the voluntary sector in Sussex.

Godfrey Daniel has a lifetime of experience in public service and his knowledge of policing and strong commitment to the people of Sussex is very evident (www.godfreydaniel.org.uk).   Godfrey is not afraid of making tough decisions.

Sussex deserves a credible, competent and capable Police & Crime Commissioner.  If you agree, please vote for Godfrey Daniel.
