Election statement:

As your Police and Crime Commissioner, you can be sure that I will always have only one agenda – to improve the quality of life for all who visit, live or work in our Cleveland community.

We must keep “Policing free from politics”: however I need your support to achieve that.  As your PCC, I will:

  • Eliminate the culture in Cleveland police that has led to misconduct, abuse of authority and waste of taxpayer’s money – no one is above the law.
  • Reduce expenses of senior officers and promote a responsible, common sense approach to all expenditure – taxpayer’s money must not be squandered.
  • Prevent and reduce crime and the fear of crime by getting more officers out on the streets, more of the time – by reducing and streamlining administrative procedures – and by working closely with the voluntary sector, charities and Community Safety Partnerships.
  • Work with the Criminal Justice system and voluntary groups to ensure that victims and witnesses get the best possible service.
  • Meet with and listen to the public on a regular basis throughout Cleveland –  I will be out in the community at every opportunity – this is YOUR police service and I will be YOUR voice whenever policies are being formulated.  The public will also be able to use electronic media to voice their concerns to me at any time.
  • Promote a “Challenge – Educate – Enforce” approach to all forms of anti-social behaviour.
  • Lobby for appropriate sentencing of offenders.
  • Ensure that the office of the PCC conducts all business with transparency, integrity and impartiality.
  • Provide a permanent police station in Ingleby Barwick.
  • Provide a more accessible, Police station in Thornaby.
  • Ensure Police Stations with limited opening hours reflect the needs of the public.
