Election statement:


As a local resident, I know how important it is that we have the best Police Force to serve Lancashire. As a victim of crime myself, I know what a good job the police do already. However it is vital that residents in communities right across Lancashire have a say in policing priorities. I will make sure that this happens.

I will give the police in Lancashire just one target: To cut crime. Far too often they are stuck behind a desk, filling forms, ticking boxes and working their way through red-tape. I will make sure that they are out on the streets, in our towns and villages, visible and doing the job they joined up for; protecting us.

I will get rid of the softly, softly approach that we sometimes see. All crime must be taken seriously, from the most serious organised crime, right down to so called low-level nuisance like graffiti and anti-social behaviour. Offenders should be brought to justice, and victims supported.

A key role for the new Police and Crime Commissioners is to make sure that residents can have a real say in policing priorities. Lancashire has a variety of communities, from the most urban to the most rural. That’s what I like about being a Lancastrian. I intend to make sure that every part of the County has a voice, and that resources are shared.

If I am elected on November 15th, I will be accountable to you. You will have the chance to vote me out after three and a half years if I don’t stick to my promises, and get crime down. That’s giving the people of Lancashire real power.
