I am Kathryn Holloway and I am certainly not a typical politician. I spent 20 years as a news reporter and presenter for services like ITN, TV-am and Sky, getting to the truth of the matter and holding the authorities to account on behalf of the public, which I believe are essential skills as a Police and Crime Commissioner. I also covered every possible stage of the Criminal Justice system from close up, working alongside detectives and covering cases from Magistrates’ Courts to the Old Bailey. Since 2000 I have built an international reputation as a specialist in the release of public information in an emergency. I worked for 8 years for the Cabinet Office’s National Emergency Planning College and, with my own company, have advised Chief Constables, Fire Chiefs, military leaders and the boards of some of Britain’s largest companies in a crisis, as well as speaking at the World Conference in Disaster Management. This background means I will explain police action to the public and could never preside over a cover-up.
I will introduce practical, common-sense solutions to work within our budget of £100 million and to use our officers to best effect. I will work with partners like the NHS, Fire Service and councils to share facilities where possible and support one another so the police do take on the responsibilities of others. I do not need an expensive Deputy or PR Agency.
I will make sure that you get a fair share of policing whether you live in the town or country and whichever community you belong to as a Commissioner for all.
