Building Trust and Confidence in Policing
Police and Crime Commissioners were created to be the voice of the people, making sure that local police meet the needs of the community
In order to meet that mandate your Police and Crime Commissioners must have vision and ambition
They must not settle for their force being at the foot of the funding table year after year
They must not accept their Force having one of the lowest levels of morale in the country
They must aspire to their Force achieving the lowest crime statistics nationally
They must work towards their Force being at the top of the HMICFRS gradings as outstanding in every respect
And they must aim for an outstanding public satisfaction rating across all of the communities they serve and regularly measure and report their progress towards achieving it
In short, your Police and Crime Commissioner should be determined to establish Lincolnshire’s Police Force the most professional, efficient and highly motivated force in the country
And no, it is not naïve to have ambition and want excellence
IT IS ESSENTIAL
That is the vision which has inspired me to stand for Police and Crime Commissioner and which I will commit to pursuing
Hello and welcome to my website.
On this site you will find information about me, why I am standing for Police and Crime Commissioner for Lincolnshire and what I hope to achieve in the role if elected.
You will also find my 280 blog which includes some thoughts and questions about different aspects of policing and the criminal justice system. Each blog is no more than 280 words (less that a minute to read but longer than a tweet) so no rambling monologues to plough through!
Please do let me know if you have any views on the issues covered in the blog comments section. I would love to know what you think.
If you are wondering about the photograph at the top of this page, it is of my son's passing out parade at Hendon Police College in 2009. A proud day for him and the whole family.
As an independent candidate it would have been difficult if not impossible for me to have competed with the organisation and resources available to candidates from the main political parties on my own. I am therefore grateful to the Lincolnshire Independents for allowing me to use their platform for my campaign and for their support, encouragement and advice
Only an independent candidate can promise to put community interests first, free from political influence or interference
