Statement to voters

Keeping Norfolk Safe As your PCC: I would work for you to ensure that your concerns about policing, crime and community safety are heard and are acted upon.

Full statement

My plan is to:

Increase visible policing: to make our streets safer, especially for women and girls walking alone; with more resources to deal with speeding motorists, anti-social behaviour and shoplifting.

Reduce high-harm crime: such as knife crime, which is increasing; drug supply, which persists with its violence and other criminality; and domestic abuse, which is reducing but still totals 18% of reported crime in Norfolk.

Put victims first: to better support victims of crime by improving the service and support they get from the criminal justice system; to provide better support for victims of online crime.

Address issues that cause crime: the police deal with individual incidents but a ‘public health ’approach, involving partnerships of public, private and charity organisations, is needed to deal with underlying issues that cause crime.

Funding: Money is the fuel that drives policing. Careful control of taxpayer’s money is needed to get the best value for money.

I served 34 years in the Army so I understand the vocational, non-political, nature of serving the public. I also understand the police’s need for the support of the public, local authorities, private businesses and charities. The PCC can bring all these together, helping the police to focus on policing while wider partnerships deal with issues that cause crime. The police and public should go forward together.

Please help me to make this vision a reality by giving me your vote on 2nd May 2024
