“Every Crime Matters…
Because Every Victim Matters!”

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.

How that voice is heard and how it’s communicated to the chief constable and his officers is an important
