“It’s not just how much public money is spent… but how well it’s spent”

As Staffordshire’s police and crime commissioner I have been responsible for spending £180million of public money each year and ensuring the work of police is effective at keeping 1.2million people living here safe.

When elected in November 2012 there was a £19.8million hole in police finances but a firm grip on spending means budgets are in decent shape to 2020. I’ve not raised, at all, the part of council tax local people pay towards policing.

I am committed to community policing. There are 1% more response and neighbourhood officers in Stoke-on-Trent & Staffordshire than when I was elected whereas in Labour PCC areas the average is 17% fewer.

The mobile technology revolution I promised in 2013 to get officers out of stations and on the streets is on track to deliver 250,000 extra hours of frontline policing annually… equivalent to 110 extra officers… but at one eighth of the cost!

Critical to the future is preparing our police to meet changing crime in an internet enabled world. Online fraud, organised crime and the abhorrent abuse of children are threats beyond what could have been imagined.

The strategic technology partnership I’ve signed with Boeing will improve the way Staffordshire Police deal with day to day crimes and crucially prepare them to tackle the harm caused by criminal use of technology.

See my website for more about criminal asset seizures now going back to communities, 5700 insurance dodgers taken off Staffordshire roads, better support through the Staffordshire Victim Gateway and how the Police Cadets I promised are enhancing young lives.
