As some of you did not see or hear a lot of the PCC election, I thought it might be helpful to summarise here the aims of our new Commissioner. He has pledged to
“reduce crime and drive up detection rates
ensure the police budget is targeted effectively
to protect vulnerable people
to ensure the police act firmly and fairly, using good judgement to deal with the public politely
make sure communities are not blighted by anti-social behaviour
reduce the likelihood of gold theft from Asian families”
If you have issues about how to prevent crime, or are not happy with the way crime is targeted and pursued, then feel free to write to Anthony Stansfeld. He also has a website, www.anthonystansfeld.org.uk.
