Richard Antony Bruce Hibbs
Britain has the finest police in the world, but it no longer feels like it. Everywhere there is a growing realisation that today’s politicians cannot solve the problems that young people growing up in our communities face. Crime still produces a mixture of fear, anger and disgust. But these have become the same emotions that the police response (or perceived lack of it) provokes in us:
- Too often the police arrive too late or not at all, as a result of a basic mismatch between supply and demand on the ground.
- Policing is no longer responsive to local needs. Strategically, it has been hijacked by political parties, inappropriate use of technology and a breakdown in the presumption of innocence.
- The original ethos of policing has been replaced by a bureaucratic obsession with risk.
Rather than hold the force to account for this triple-whammy, North Wales Police Authority has made whopping excuses for a range of fundamentally unproductive working practices.
Less than half of people affected are satisfied with the police response to Anti-Social Behaviour in North Wales, which is significantly worse than in other forces. Yet the police underspent their own front line budget by £8 million last year! North Wales Police has the highest Police Precept of any police force outside London and cash reserves of £40 million. Is it a police force or a bank?
We need zero tolerance on drugs, police stations where WE want them, and a £20 rebate.
Richard Hibbs the only candidate prepared to tell the truth about the consequences of police action – and inaction! So join him and send a message to the Chief Constable – vote for RICHARD HIBBS!
