Statement to voters

On May 2 you have the opportunity to shape the future of our community.

Full statement

I served as a police officer for 15 years and I am honoured to be your Labour candidate.

Having been proud to call Nottinghamshire home for over 25 years, I have dedicated myself to serving and protecting its residents.

With my experience as a police officer, and now working within the NHS, I understand the complex nature of our communities.

I know first hand how to keep people safe.

Honesty and integrity are paramount to this role and as your PCC, I will uphold these values and ensure transparency in all my actions. Trust is the cornerstone of effective governance, and I am committed to fostering trust through open communication and ethical conduct.

My pledges to you are clear and actionable. I will:

Rebuild neighbourhood policing by recruiting more officers and establishing named officers for every community, alongside the creation of community hubs.

Take a zero-tolerance approach to anti-social behaviour, bolstering neighbourhood policing, enhancing community intelligence, and implementing problem-solving strategies to increase convictions.

Tackle violence against women and girls through partnership working, empowering communities to report crimes, and implementing robust monitoring of violent perpetrators in collaboration with the courts.

Combat knife crime by establishing Young Futures hubs and collaborating with local authorities, integrated care boards, schools, and youth services to provide effective interventions.

Prioritise road safety by targeting speeding and reckless driving, implementing zero-tolerance policies on drink and drug driving, and working tirelessly to reduce car fatalities.

A vote for me is a vote for a safer Nottinghamshire for us all. Together, we can build a safer and more secure community.
