We all want our families to be safe, when at home, at school, at work and when out and about in our communities. If something bad happens we want a quick response, a reassuring presence and confidence that action will be taken. This requires a strong and committed police service.

We have 18,000 fewer Police Officers now than when the Conservatives came to government in 2010 and as I listen to local families there’s a clear consensus that these cuts threaten our safety and security. I’m determined to send that message back to the government.

We all now know that Crime hasn’t really fallen over this period, but it has changed. It’s estimated that for every recorded crime there are an additional two unrecorded ‘cyber-crimes’. Is there really a difference whether you have lost £500 to an on-street ‘pick-pocket’ or to a cyber-criminal online? Policing needs to evolve be equally effective in both cases.

Recorded crime has changed too, it’s become more violent and anti-social. Reports of violence against the person, possession of weapons and public order offences increased by almost 20% in Cheshire alone last year.

So I say let’s focus on cutting crime, not the Police. I pledge delivery of real neighbourhood policing. I pledge to back our officers and get them back on the streets – fighting crime and keeping us safe. I pledge to focus on the delivery of your priorities and a police service you will be proud of. I’m listening and reacting every day to the experiences of ordinary families throughout Cheshire. Please visit my website to find out more and tell me your views.
