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.

Cara Kim McGuinness

I’m asking you to re-elect me as Police and Crime Commissioner so I can continue to be your voice in the police. You told me you want a force focused on fighting crime and preventing crime and that is what I’m delivering for you.

Since 2010 the Tories have cut more than £140m from Northumbria Police, resulting in 1,100 jobs lost. I’m rebuilding your force in order to keep our streets safe and stop people turning to crime in the first place. I’m recruiting hundreds of frontline police officers — hugely exceeding the Government’s offer to our force, as well as replacing departing and retiring officers. And I’ll add to that with 60 new detectives to crack down on organised crime and online fraudsters.

We all know neighbourhood policing is a vital part of good policing. I’ll ensure the force changes, so every resident can more easily access a dedicated, named officer for their neighbourhood and improve ways to contact the inspector at the top of their patch.

And I’ll back neighbourhoods even further with a new anti-social behaviour task force to ensure the police, councils, housing providers and others finally meet up and focus on your problems together.

I’m also backing the police with determined efforts to prevent crime. My Violence Reduction Unit is targeting known offenders while at the same time reversing Tory cuts to youth services and bringing strong role models, and hope, back to young people at risk. And I’m recovering money from convicted criminals and ploughing it back in to local youth services, bringing a sense of justice to neighbourhoods who suffer the effects of crime.

This form has been prepared by the Election Agent for Kim McGuinness, Chris McHugh, at Labour North, Labour Central, Kings Manor, Newcastle upon Tyne NE1 6PA.
