I am running to become your Police and Crime Commissioner to Get Crime DOWN.
In the last five years under a Labour Commissioner, crime went up by a third in our region, with violent crime more than doubling, and our region sadly suffering the highest rate of knife crime in the country.
44 of our police stations have been closed by Labour who plan to close even more, including Aldridge, Solihull, Sutton Coldfield, Tipton and Wednesfield. At the same time, they’ve increased our local policing tax by the maximum for the last eight years.
We need MORE policing and LESS politics – as a proven public servant, my approach will be different because it will put people’s safety and security first.
I’ll tackle rising crime with a robust and proactive approach. I will STOP police station closures, as we invest in local police presence, increasing neighbourhood police officer numbers and recruiting more PCSOs and Specials to provide specialist capabilities and links to our diverse communities.
With more investment into policing by this government, I will prioritise resources into crime fighting – on the side of victims rather than the criminals.
I will cut bureaucracy from the PCC’s office to ensure more money goes into the frontline. I will ensure the police are more accountable and accessible to the public.
I draw from my 12 years serving at home and abroad in the Army and my years of service to communities to come at this with commitment and energy to find solutions.
I believe in the role of the police as a force for good, and I will be a bridge between our communities and West Midlands Police to ensure we rebuild trust and confidence in our region.
