Statement to voters

Over the last three years, I have worked hard to deliver a positive agenda that champions the needs of residents, businesses and community groups and gives a voice to victims, the vulnerable and the voiceless.

By the end of this year, there will be over 450 more Police Officers in Kent than when you elected me in 2016. I have helped retain 300 PCSO posts and the Chief Constable has given them more powers. I’ve made it easier to report crime, by tackling 101 performance and supporting new methods such as online reporting.

There’s more help for victims of crime than ever before. And working with Kent Police, the Police Cadets programme has returned. Nearly 400 young people are now involved and this will be a county-wide programme by the end of the year.

There is so much more I have been able to deliver, and I would like to stand again as your candidate so that I can do even more.

This will include efforts to reduce violence, getting more Officers out and visible in our local neighbourhoods, continuing to my campaigning to ensure that people experience mental ill health get the right care from the right person at the right time and reducing the demand on the Police and making our justice system work better for victims and witnesses.
