As Police & Crime Commissioner I have attended over 330 local meetings across Hartlepool, Middlesbrough, Stockton and Redcar and Cleveland, using feedback to draw up a policing plan reflecting public priorities.

Cleveland Police face extremely challenging financial circumstances. In the past six years we have seen a real term cut of £36m (33%) in Government grants resulting in the loss of 400 posts.

For some forces the answer to financial pressures has been to vastly reduce Neighbourhood Policing. I am pleased to say that, following considerable work by my Office and the Chief Constable, Neighbourhood Policing is being retained in Cleveland.

I will continue to fight against Government cuts to policing and will continue to have as my priorities the protection of the vulnerable and the strengthening of Neighbourhood Policing. I welcome collaboration with other forces, but will continue to campaign against the regionalisation of policing and will ensure command and control remains within the county.

I have overseen major efficiency savings. For example, my office costs 30% less than the Police Authority it replaced – that’s about £350,000 a year to be ploughed back into frontline Neighbourhood Policing.

I am the Labour candidate but as PCC  I represent all local people. Where there are areas for improvement I will hold the Chief Constable to account in making these improvements. I will do this whilst recognising the high level of professionalism and integrity of the vast majority of officers  and staff. I will continue to support these officers and speak out against those who undermine Cleveland Police with unjustified and irresponsible attacks.
