Police & Crime Commissioner Elections

Thursday, 5 May 2016, 7am–10pm at your local polling station

Police and crime commissioner is a public face of your police service who is responsible for making sure that Lincolnshire police is efficient, effective and focused on the needs of residents. A police and crime commissioner will be elected on the 5th of May, so let’s make sure that they are independent and free of party political control. We need you to come and vote.

Crime is a blight on our communities and can be devastating for victims. As the Police and Crime Commissioner for Lincolnshire I would work without prejudice or political favour to ensure the police respond to what local people want.

I would ensure that the force has effective strategies to tackle the biggest problem areas facing our county, such as:

  • drug addiction and dealing;
  • repeat offenders and anti-social behaviour;
  • rural crime and lack of availability of officers and resources to tackle rural crime;
  • weapons and violent crime;
  • the poor relationship between public and police;
  • unreported crime.

I would introduce:

  • a “what works” initiative, so that we learn from the best initiatives both locally and across the country;
  • a major review of administrative costs so that frontline policing is protected wherever possible.

I would also:

  • consider devolving part of the budget to parish councils so they can respond to what they see as their key priorities;
  • hold regular events and consultation with local residents and other organisations such as businesses to ensure that both myself and the police are accountable and deliver what you want;
  • engage with young people by having an approachable police presence available for schools, colleges and their wider community;
  • challenge the local Crown Prosecution Service and criminal Justice system over decisions that clearly undermine the work of the Lincolnshire Police and public confidence in them;
  • challenge our local MPs and senior politicians to finally stand up for Lincolnshire to get fair funding for our police, for victim support and rehabilitation schemes that prevent reoffending.
