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.

Michael Jones

MICHAEL JONES is a Labour member of the Sussex Police and Crime Panel, where he has been standing up for residents on all matters related to policing.

Michael trained as a solicitor, and is known locally as a hard working, independently minded councillor. He has lived in Sussex for most of his life, growing up on the south coast.

Michael is the leading councillor for Public Protection at Crawley Borough Council, with responsibility for community safety and fighting crime and anti-social behaviour.

Michael’s priorities for Sussex Police

  • Reverse the proposed cuts to front-line policing and keep a presence in every town, every village
  • Strengthen the fight against internet and telephone scammers
  • Make residents’ local priorities the Police’s priorities, like anti-social behaviour
  • Give low level crime the attention it deserves
  • Stronger action on hate crime

Sussex Police is set to lose huge numbers of neighbourhood police and PCSOs.

Michael will attempt to stop the current round of savage Tory cuts to community policing on the first day after being elected, doing whatever is necessary to save existing officers and restore Police morale.

Local people know the worth of community policing, and the benefits to crime reduction through greater visibility and information gathering. We need a new PCC to save Community Policing and to stop Sussex Police making a historic mistake.

Make sure your vote counts.

If you don’t want to see the Conservatives win this time, remember Labour was in second place at the last Sussex PCC election. You get a second preference vote in this election. Even if you usually vote for another party, please use your second preference vote for Michael as the candidate best placed to beat the Tories.
