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.

Brian Mathew

The re-run was caused by the fielding of an ineligible candidate with a criminal record. It is costing you the tax-payer around £1.5 million and those who caused this to happen should pay. But you can still make them pay at the ballot box!

In May, the Lib-Dems came second.  This time as the main challengers, we are best placed to win the re-run.

And Brian Mathew has the right track-record!

  • Trouble shooter, with real practical experience with British and International charities, governments & academic institutions.
  • Has served on the Wiltshire and Swindon Police and Crime Panel for the last 4 years.
  • An innovator. His motion scaling up the ‘Shared Lives’ adult social care programme is resulting in a better life for the clients with hundreds of thousands of pounds saved for Wiltshire Council tax-payers.
  • Led the successful Climate Emergency motion, passed on a ‘rugby score’ of a vote 36 to 32.
  • Whilst a student made a citizen’s arrest on a young offender on the run.
  • While in Tanzania served the British community in the up-country capital Dodoma in an Honorary Consular capacity.
  • An active member of his local church.

Priorities for Wiltshire:

  • Speeding – promoting intelligent speed cameras to target those who seriously endanger all of us, with high speed and often lack of insurance a killer combination.
  • A dedicated modern police station for Salisbury.
  • Activate retired police to volunteer with schools to support our kids.
  • Promoting ‘Green’ Policing – Fast electric cars for e-response & electric bikes for visible neighbourhood policing, along with ‘Pop up Cop Shops’ where police stations have been closed.
  • Giving violence against women, Internet fraud, antisocial behaviour, pet theft and the victims of crime a higher priority.
