For me, safe and secure communities are the bedrock on which we build success and prosperity.

My priorities for policing in Essex are aimed at mending the damaged elements of our society by:

  1. Being tough on Anti-Social Behaviour;
  2. Reversing the worrying increase in serious violence;
  3. Having a zero tolerance of domestic violence;
  4. Eradicating organised crime and people-trafficking;
  5. Making our Police more local, visible and accessible.

I understand that Essex Police and Crime Commissioner is a challenging role, and public safety is important to all Essex’s residents. The government has undertaken to protect police budgets for the rest of this parliament, but the Police Service will still need to modernise: to be local and accessible, and use new technologies and media to be more open and efficient. Where this has been done elsewhere we know they spend a fifth more of their time out on patrol. And to make sure policing is local, I aim to put a Special Constable in every community.

My experience as Cabinet Member at Essex County Council and Deputy Leader at Brentwood Council will enable me to help the Police prioritise and manage their resources, and lead to more effective and efficient policing in Essex. Professionally, I have over thirty years’ experience as a leading financial analyst at major British, European and American banks. In doing so I have successfully led and shaped large organisations who serve millions of people. Essex Police is different, but I can offer them the same qualities of innovative thinking, leadership, and the ability to inspire. These will let me help the Police deliver and enable me to hold them to account when they need to improve.
