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.

Matthew Richard Scott

Your security is my priority. My six point plan will deliver the positive changes that Kent and Medway needs in all of our urban, rural and coastal areas.

The job of a PCC is to make sure people’s priorities for policing in their area are listened to, taken seriously, and acted upon by the Police. Throughout my career in public service, I have developed the experience required to support people through the Police and justice system, hold Ministers and public officials to account and make decisions about how resources are allocated. Coming from a Police family, I understand not only what Officers need to get the job done, but what they go through in the line of duty to protect us all.

As Commissioner, I will work hard to cut crime and reduce re-offending in all parts of the county. I want to make sure that victims are at the heart of the justice system and get the support they need. I shall look at how we can deliver a better service and value for money by developing the relationship with other emergency services.

I want to increase visible policing on our streets and support neighbourhood teams. Action is required to tackle the harm caused by anti-social behaviour, abuse and violence and substance misuse. I shall work with communities on solutions to the misery caused by Operation Stack. I will promote better online security to prevent cyber crime. I also want to revolutionise the approach to mental health, which is taking up more Police time.

For a safer community, lower crime and better accountability, I hope you will vote for me to be your Police and Crime Commissioner on Thursday 5th May.
