For the last 13 years I’ve been the Assembly Member for Caerphilly. My time at the National Assembly includes three and a half years as a member of the Welsh Government. First as the Deputy Minister for Skills and Technology and then as the Minister for Communities and Tackling Poverty.

Policing must be viewed as a true public service based on our key principles of fairness and social justice. My priorities for policing in Gwent are:

  • As visible a presence on our streets and communities as possible. I know that the type of crime that blights our communities more than any other is anti-social behaviour in all its forms.
  • Ensuring that crimes such as domestic abuse, hate crime, child exploitation, and modern slavery are given the attention that they deserve.
  • Developing and maintaining good community cohesion. This is especially important for vulnerable sections of our communities such as the BME and faith communities.
  • Working with the Voluntary Sector so that their expertise in a range of areas (e.g. mental health and homelessness) can help inform on-going policies and practices.
  • Working with the Chief Constable so that our principles of social justice become the cornerstone of police practice.
  • Working with the Welsh Government in terms of the devolved public services and on practical issues of support such as the provision of the additional Police Community
  • Support Officers (PCSOs) for Gwent.
  • Playing its part in counter terrorism activities.

All of this must be worked for in the face of major cuts to the police budget, by the Tory UK Government, over the last five years.

This will demand strong partnerships with Education, Social Services, the NHS, and other

key providers of public services.

I believe that I have the experience and commitment to make policing reflect our values of social justice.
