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.

It’s easy to grow concerned for how benefit cuts and sanctions, and cuts to social services are Increasingly, putting front line police in situations which have mental illness, domestic abuse, homelessness and social exclusion at their root.

We need to reconnect our communities to our policing, making up for where we are experiencing a community disconnect.

Having developed a knowledge of the need for better police understanding of groups which face discrimination’ and a better understanding of ‘vulnerability’, I welcome the work of the Sexual Assault Referral Centre.

More can, and should, be done.

I’ve travelled, lived in Bulgaria, gaining a deep appreciation of the issues immigrant communities face trying to integrate into British society.

Passionate advocate for rights and welfare; I’ve been a Town Councillor since 2014, stood for District 2015, Vice-chair of the Mid Suffolk Disability Forum, and actively campaign for NGO’s including DADID & DPAC.

As you’d expect of a Green Party candidate, I’d like to see PCSOs take more positive action against littering, dog fouling, graffiti writing and illegal parking, yet my priorities for Suffolk Police include:

  • Improving relationships between police, local support groups and charities; both tackling causes of crime within the community whilst ensuring that all officers have the best possible training and understanding of social issues

–  Continued assistance to victims to be offered, taking ownership for individuals continued welfare.

–  To provide more support for constructive, restorative justice.

  • Tackling hate crime in all forms
  • Whilst defending services from further cuts, continuing their excellent work reducing crime on a depleted budget. I appreciate it’s difficult to prioritise all the things the public expect them to do.

I believe that we can take pride in keeping Suffolk safer, together.
