As the next Police and Crime Commissioner I will put you, the law-abiding citizen, at the centre of policing policies here in Derbyshire and keep you and your family safe.
-¨Married, grown up family, Masters Degree in Law
¨-Local Councillor for 11 years
¨-Leader of Dronfield Town Councillor
¨-Cabinet member for Corporate Services at Derbyshire County Council, including Finance, Legal, Property, HR and IT managing a budget of over £46 million.
MY PLAN FOR DERBYSHIRE:
I have been at the forefront of providing strong leadership to reform public services. This has meant leading on prudent budgeting and robust financial management to properly prioritise and manage demands, reducing waste of resources and providing more effective and efficient services.
I will apply the same principles in setting and managing Derbyshire Police multi-million-pound budget and ensuring policing is delivered effectively across Derbyshire and Derby City. Above all, I will ensure the people of Derbyshire are able to go about their daily business without fear of being victims of crime. I will:
¨¨♦ Increase police numbers and police patrols
¨¨♦ Provide a strong police presence in towns and villages
¨¨♦ Work with Government to bring tougher policing and a tougher approach to fighting crime
¨¨♦ Tackle anti-social behaviour
¨¨♦ Drive down burglaries, robberies and theft
¨¨♦ Improve road safety
¨♦ Fight rural crime
¨¨♦ Tackle complex issues of domestic violence and drug related crime
¨♦¨Support Police Officers in use of powers such as Stop & Search to better fight crime and keep law abiding residents safe.
¨¨♦ ¨Increase partnership working with other organisations to deter and prevent crime and reduce re-offending
¨¨♦ Manage budget sensibly to focus resources back to fighting crime
Evidence shows that Conservative Police and Crime Commissioners perform better than any other party. We are the party of Law and Order.
