“Every Crime Matters…
Because Every Victim Matters!”

Every crime must matter but due to austerity  – its hasn’t. I have shown I am independently minded and am passionate about our county and that is why I am standing again to  be PCC offering hope, a vision and investing in our frontline and our communities to keep Gloucestershire safe.

With over 35 years of policing experience from being a Gloucestershire bobby on the beat to investigating serious crimes and locking away criminals to my 8 and a half years as the county’s first Police and Crime Commissioner I have shown my passion for our county.

The last decade has been tough for the policing with budgets and officers and staff cut right to the bone. But during my time in office, we we’re always praised for financial stability that has in the last few years been put at risk.

Under my watch I pledge to make sure our police concentrate on the primary focus keeping us safe – by making sure every crime matter because every victim matters.
