You put your faith in me by electing me as your Police and Crime Commissioner in 2014. I ask you to do that again.

I came into office in the wake of the child sexual exploitation (CSE) scandal in Rotherham.

Public trust was shaken. The police were in shock at what was revealed. I said that confidence could only be rebuilt if the police acknowledged past mistakes, improved their practice and brought prosecutions.

It took determination. As a result, this is now happening. The first major trials at Sheffield Crown Court in February led to five people being gaoled with sentences totalling over 100 years. More trials are coming.

I also said that I would:

  • put victims of crime at the heart of local policing
  • consult with CSE victims, survivors and their families and enable them to assist the police with their training and practice
  • maintain neighbourhood policing, despite big cuts in police numbers and police grant by government
  • pursue efficiency and effectiveness in policing and support services
  • give half my salary to local groups, especially those supporting victims and tackling crime and anti-social behaviour.

I kept those promises.

My priorities for the next 4 years are:

  • working hard to make South Yorkshire a safe place to live, learn and work by tackling crime and anti-social behaviour, protecting the vulnerable, and requiring the police to treat all people and communities with fairness
  • maintaining Police Community Support Officer numbers at the current level because they are often the ears and eyes of the police locally
  • replacing the old 101 technology with a new system which you can trust
  • managing the £240m budget to ensure efficiency and effectiveness

I will not over promise but, with your support, I will deliver.
