Cumbria remains one of the safest counties since Richard Rhodes became our PCC. However, we cannot be complacent, Domestic Violence, Cybercrime, Child Sexual Exploitation are increasing. Terrorism is a constant threat. In Cumbria we must also prioritise rural crime to safeguard our families, homes, farms and tourist industries.

I will make these and addressing all forms of anti-social behaviour my priorities, including securing the future of consistent safe provision for victims of crime and domestic abuse across Cumbria, I’ll introduce a youth commission to engage young people in preventing crime.

I have served our country on operations as diverse as peacekeeping in Bosnia, Foot and Mouth here in Cumbria and most recently in Sierra Leone fighting Ebola. I was Regimental Colonel of The Royal Logistic Corps, 16,000 personnel supporting Operations in Afghanistan, have had vast commercial experience and direct responsibility for multi million pound procurement, and operational budgets.

The army culture is about leadership, teamwork and getting the job done, not committees talking about it, squabbling or making excuses, I will work with the police, communities and agencies as a team.

Balancing the books will always be challenging but I have worked at Ministry level and understand how government works, I will fight to safeguard our policing budget and front line police numbers, most importantly I will ensure Cumbria has a voice to government ministers.

Integrity, gaining your trust and doing the right thing are important to me. Unlike other candidates, I’m not a career politician, I left home in Wigton 34 years ago to become a soldier. I won’t make ‘politician’s promises,’ my mission is to work for you, to do all in my power to keep you and your family safe.
