MY TRACK RECORD

Having served as Sussex Police & Crime Commissioner (PCC) since 2012, I have the experience and proven track record to continue making a difference to policing.

As PCC, I have held the police to account on behalf of residents, supported victims of crime and made considerable savings to reinvest in frontline policing.

SOME ACHIEVEMENTS SO FAR

  • Opened recruitment for 100 new Police Constables, more PCSOs and issued cameras to all frontline officers
  • £20million upgrade programme for police stations
  • Established an award-winning Youth Commission, nationally recognised for outstanding public engagement
  • Encouraged the creation of dedicated business/cybercrime strategy for Sussex
  • Funding support for victims of abuse, serious sexual offences, child exploitation
  • Established the UK’s first Elders Commission – giving older people a voice on policing

MY PLAN TO CONTINUE DELIVERING

If re-elected I will continue to:

  • Deliver effective neighbourhood policing to our rural communities, towns and city
  • Support victims of crime, especially our elderly and young
  • Cut crime, catch criminals and reduce reoffending
  • Protect our most vulnerable against all forms of abuse
  • Improve access to justice for local people and put victims at the heart of the criminal justice system
  • Invest in frontline policing and further improve the performance and efficiency of Sussex Police

This election really matters – the PCC is responsible for setting the £250m budget for policing in Sussex, has the power to appoint and dismiss the Chief Constable and must ensure residents’ views are heard when setting policing priorities.

I’ve travelled the length and breadth of Sussex hearing peoples’ views about what matters in local policing. We’ve made real progress to deliver on these priorities – let’s not put that work at risk now.

Strong Leadership. A Clear Plan.  A More Secure Future
