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.

Cath Pickles

Recorded crime has risen in Suffolk but the Tory government has slashed the number of police officers in the county since 2010. The choice for people in Suffolk at the PCC election is between electing a Labour commissioner who will stand up to Tory police cuts, or a Tory commissioner who will continue to back them.

A vote for Cath Pickles in the Police and Crime Commissioner elections is a vote for:

  • Protection and prioritisation of front line policing: Cath opposes the drastic reduction of the number of Police Community Support Officers included in the Local Policing Plan
  • Challenge to the consensus: Suffolk needs a Police & Crime Commissioner who does not take their lead from conservatives on Suffolk’s district and county councils
  • Prioritising prevention of sexual and violent crime
  • A joined-up education strategy to protect EVERY child in the county from sexual abuse and exploitation
  • A joined-up strategy with health, mental health and social services to protect vulnerable and “at-risk” residents from crime and the fear of crime
  • An experienced senior leader, mediator and skilled communicator, capable of finding consensus and solutions

This election will have an important impact on the future of policing in Suffolk. Please use your vote to elect Cath Pickles as our Police & Crime Commissioner.
