Statement to voters

Wherever we live in Devon, Cornwall or the Isles of Scilly, one thing that connects us all is the need to feel safe.

Full statement

Anti-social behaviour, violence particularly against women and girls, drug-crime, and alcohol abuse continue to seriously harm our communities. Too many urban and rural crimes go unchecked, damaging our families and businesses.

That’s why I’m standing for election as Police & Crime Commissioner.

After 14 years of Tory mismanagement, Labour is committed to taking back our streets, halving serious violent crime and restoring confidence in our police and criminal justice system. I am too. This is where I grew up and where I’m proud to call home.

My career in public service has taken me to challenging and dangerous places including Afghanistan. It cemented my belief that law and order is the bedrock of our society.

I will bring strength, integrity and honesty to the role, and pledge to:

1. Put police back on the streets: More police officers and PCSOs on our streets to prevent crime, catch offenders, and tackle anti-social behaviour.

2. Tackle the levels of violence against women and girls: By creating new police specialists to tackle violence and rape.

3. Prevent youth crime: Knife crime is soaring. I’ll ensure the police crack-down on serious violence and prevent young people getting drawn into crime.

4. Boost crime prevention and victim support: To make it more local, and better focused on the challenges that face our rural areas and towns.

5. Crackdown on illegal sewage dumping: I’m backing Labour’s tough plans to ensure water bosses overseeing repeated illegal sewage dumping are prosecuted.

Vote for me, Daniel Steel on 2nd May for stronger policing and safer streets!
