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.

Ross David Pepper

Ross is a born and bred Lincolnshire Yellowbelly. Both his parents hail from the county too; his Dad from Lincoln and his mum from Boston.

Having been born in Lincoln, gone to school and university in the city and spent his working life in the county, Ross understands the issues that Lincolnshire face, and how it is often let down in its need for the resources it requires. That is especially true when it comes to police funding for the county. This cannot continue and Ross will fight for fair funding for Lincolnshire Police.

One of Ross’ key aims is crime prevention. Cutting crime before it happens is the best use of resources when it comes to delivering an effective police service. Working with organisations to break the cycle of crime by focusing on issues such as drug rehabilitation, youth services and adult education will provide a vital link to cut offending rates.

Serious and violent crime cannot go unpunished and tackling this will be a priority for Ross. Alongside this, we need to provide quality support and respect for the victim, especially in incidents of sexual assault and rape.

Ross would work with communities and local government to make our streets and roads safer. Safer streets at night is an important area of concern that Ross has campaigned on locally, and will be a focus if elected. He will also work to tackle speeding and dangerous driving on our county’s roads.

Ross has committed to pledge £25,000 a year of his salary, if elected, to charities that will help crime prevention in the county.
