As someone who has had experience as a magistrate, a school governor, a national executive member for the British Airline Pilots Association and completed a 40 year career as a commercial airline pilot I believe I am well qualified to take on the role of Police and Crime Commissioner for Warwickshire. On my website (www.ronball4pcc.co.uk) you will see that people from my past activities have generously endorsed my decision to stand in this election. My manifesto is based on common sense. My primary responsibility will be to reduce crime and disorder in Warwickshire. I will achieve that by supporting firm but fair early intervention for low level, first time offenders to help to get them back on track and to help them to stay there. For other offenders my role will be to work with the chief constable to ensure a high morale police force, achieving high detection rates delivering offenders to the courts with a high probability of conviction.
It is my firm belief that policing and party politics should be kept at arms-length wherever possible. If elected, my concerns would be to reduce crime and disorder by listening to the views of ALL of the people of Warwickshire and not to any particular section of the community to which I may have a party allegiance.
Sir Robert Peel said “the police are the public and the public are the police”. I wholeheartedly agree with that. He made no mention of political parties. By voting for me you will be voting for someone with experience and someone who will not bow to inappropriate political influence.
