Election statement:


That the role of Police and Crime Commissioner is to promote unity and justice. The Police and Crime Commissioner should possess a high level of communication and knowledge of public concern together with demonstrated administrative ability. My record speaks for itself.


To restore the moral duty of the police, listen to the concerns of the public, deliver more approachable policing across South Wales dedicated to the service of the public, and not to become a tool of politicians.

To work closely with the Chief Constable, Police Crime Panel, engage with the judiciary and other law enforcement agencies. The law must be obeyed, and breaking it will be punished by the law. If I’m elected, the scrutiny of community and custodial sentences will be prioritised.

To administer the police budget prudently and with absolute transparency at all levels.

To visit police stations and community centres, promoting and implementing regional and local surgeries, engaging the police with the communities.

To encourage the investment by local authorities in a new training infrastructure and community enterprise to accommodate the younger population together with the unemployed across South Wales. This will play a substantial role in decreasing anti-social behaviour and other criminal activities.

To continually strive within the communities to identify areas of concern, delivering improvement and promoting stability – the only way forward.

Your vote for Tony Verderame on November 15 is a vote for modernisation, unity, justice and safety across South Wales.
