I have served as West Yorkshire’s Police & Crime Commissioner since I was elected in 2012, I am standing to be re-elected on my record of delivery.

I am the only candidate in West Yorkshire with the proven ability and track record to stand up for people across West Yorkshire providing the strong committed leadership our police and communities need. 

I made firm promises when I was elected to stand against the £140m Tory cut to the police in West Yorkshire and to protect frontline policing. 

I have delivered and with partners have protected our local Police and Community Support Officers whilst also recruiting an extra 300 police officers to rebuild policing numbers in West Yorkshire.

I continue to fight for more Proceeds of Crime to come back to West Yorkshire and to invest more of this money to make sure our communities are safer and feel safer.

I am proud that my Safer Communities Fund has now provided £1.2m new funding to hundreds of local groups to tackle crime and anti-social behaviour and support victims.

I pledged to reduce the cost of my office in line with Government cuts to the police and I now have one of the lowest office costs in England & Wales.

My pledges to you:

 Protect frontline policing 

 Protect Police & Community Support Officers

 Put more proceeds of crime back into our communities

 Put victims, in particular the most vulnerable, first

 Fight for a fairer funding deal for West Yorkshire

A vote for me is a vote to protect frontline policing and committed leadership. 

Please vote LABOUR on 5 May.
