The Conservative Party Candidate
I hope this information is helpful as you consider your vote.
I have a positive plan for North Yorkshire and the City of York, which is all about cutting crime.
I’m standing because I want to make our area safer. Together, there are about 80,000 crimes and anti-social behaviour incidents here every year. Everything that can be done to cut crime must be done.
I’m also independent of the police and past regimes and believe a fresh approach is urgently needed. If elected, you can expect me to:
Improve lives by tackling anti-social behaviour head-on
Anti-social behaviour accounts for nearly half of all crime. Our police have been criticised by Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabulary for their performance. I will prioritise anti-social behaviour as it blights communities.
Protect North Yorkshire with a crackdown on cross-border crime
About a third of criminals arrested here come from surrounding areas. I will introduce stronger systems to reduce cross-border crime.
Deliver the best policing for the best value in our communities
By increasing police visibility with new ‘Parish Constables’; Special Constables with full powers of arrest based in our towns and villages.
Ensure resources are focused on the frontline, for example by relocating police HQ from Newby Wiske Hall, which costs £820,000 a year, the equivalent of approximately 30 police constables. This will save money and help protect jobs and frontline policing.
Stand up for you – be your champion
Perhaps most importantly of all, it would be my job to be your voice and ensure the police deliver what you need in your local area and to drive down crime.

Thank you for listening.
