As a father nothing is more important than providing a safe and secure environment in which to raise my children.
As your Police and Crime Commissioner my top priority will be to ensure our streets are safe and our children have a safe and secure environment in which to grow up.
I will make sure your voice is heard. I have great respect for our local police, especially when so often they put other’s safety above their own, however local communities need a greater say in how our streets are policed.
The Northumbria Police Force covers a vast area, from Sunderland in the south right up to the Scottish Borders. I have great concerns that the new Police and Crime Commissioner for our area will forget about large parts of our region based on where they feel they have a political advantage.
If elected as your Police Commissioner I will treat all areas of the Northumbria Police Force areas the same. I will not play politics with the police.
I aim to ensure the police become a more visible presence to local residents, preventing crime and bringing criminals to justice. I promise to ensure value for money for taxpayers in Northumbria.
I pledge to work to support the voluntary sector in the delivery of crime prevention and developing restorative justice. Drug and alcohol abuse, domestic and sexual offences and anti-social behaviour all need to be tackled head on.
I believe that I have the skills, energy and dedication required to do this extremely challenging job. I am ready and willing to rise to that challenge in the service of every person in Northumbria.
