Police and Crime Commissioner
I believe that the role of the Police and Crime Commissioner is to be able to lead a team, control and set priorities by maximising the budget, enabling the police to have a more visible presence on the street and better relate to working with the local communities that they serve. I believe that by making their presence visible they will develop links with the electorate, which I feel has been missing for many years. If elected, I would like to go out and engage with the constabulary in different areas, because rural and urban policing have very different priorities. This will enable me to understand and crucially, appreciate through dialogue what is required in the varied and diverse areas of Staffordshire.
I am standing because I wish to help set priorities for police resources and would like to bring some common sense to this role by consulting the public in the community on the issues that are close to their hearts. I would also seek to consider disposal of assets that are no longer required/underutilised in order to assist with funding the very necessary role of front line policing.
Tackling youth anti-social behaviour (which seems to be a rising trend in recent years) would be a foremost issue for myself, assisting in guiding them towards joining different youth activity groups. I would also like to help the parents of school children starting secondary school by having talks within various schools in the Staffordshire area, providing information on the support and resources available if they have a concern about their child’s well-being.
