I am standing for PCC as I am convinced that by applying Labour values of strong community and decency to the development of Lincolnshire’s policing plan, we can have a plan that is truly inclusive of all communities, that recognises the rights and as importantly the responsibilities of all of us to ensure our communities’ safety. If elected I promise to not only listen but to hear what is being said. I will deliver a policing plan that • Protects children and the most vulnerable • Protects victims and witnesses • Enables local people to work actively with the police to ensure that their communities are safe and secure. • Recognises the differing needs of urban and rural areas • Protects frontline services • Maintains a fully functional police station with custody suite in central Lincoln. • Scrutinises thoroughly G4S’s involvement in the policing of the county. The needs and opinions of young people are often overlooked; I will seek to create the role of a Young Police and Crime Commissioner to assist in engaging with young people. ”
