Policing is a complex business and Northamptonshire Police a large organisation. To be successful the Police and Crime Commissioner will need a multiplicity of qualities and experience. At the very least these should include those of Police service and Senior Management in a similarly large organisation.
I have been dedicated to fighting crime all my working life and held senior positions in Police Services. In addition for over 25 years I was the senior Executive responsible for UK and International Security on a world wide scale for two major UK companies, both far larger than Northamptonshire Police Service. I was a member of the European Airport and Seaport Police Association and attended EU security committee meetings. A paper I wrote on policing was the basis for EU legislation. Until last August, when I resigned to stand in this election, I was a Special Constable with Northamptonshire Police
I am standing as a UK Independence Party Candidate, however, I am not accepting any party funding. I have made it clear that as Police and Crime Commissioner, I will not permit political considerations to play any part in my decision making.
It is difficult to give a full detailed list of priorities in this short address. By consulting my website however, you will see I intend to liaise with the relevant agencies to investigate the underlying causes of :
- Violent Crime,
- Domestic Abuse,
- Anti Social Behaviour
- Drug Related Offences.
I shall also be promoting a very robust attitude by our Police service towards the behaviour of those criminal elements which blight our society and impact so adversely on the lives of law abiding citizens.
I am my own election Agent & have prepared this address. I can be contacted at Hillview House, Flore, Northants, NN7 4LW
