My first term has been about establishing the role of PCC and defending Lancashire Police against budget cuts from the Conservatives both nationally and locally.

Since the Conservatives came to power in 2010 their cuts have led to the loss of over 900 police officers and 700 police staff in Lancashire alone. These cuts will continue. In spite of this I have worked closely with the Chief Constable to ensure that neighbourhood policing has been protected and we provide an efficient and effective service. I have cut bureaucracy, ended meaningless targets and invested in new technology. This has been recognised by the HMIC as we are rated as ‘outstanding’ for efficiency and use of resources as well as for our engagement with communities.

The government’s proposed changes to the way funding is allocated would have penalised Lancashire for our success. Their proposals would have reallocated the equivalent of 600 Lancashire police officer jobs to other forces. I challenged the government, launched the ‘cut the cuts’ campaign, signed a letter threatening legal action and, with the support of the people of Lancashire, made them think again. They tried this again in the annual settlement but, again, I fought hard and won a far better outcome.

Your safety, and that of your family, is a serious business. The Conservatives are out of touch and don’t understand how devastating the cuts could have been for the people of Lancashire. I have steered the ship through some troubled waters and now face the future with some optimism. Lancashire is a great county, with a great police service. With your support I aim to make it the best force in the country.
