Local Leadership

The PCC has the ability to bring together local services to best serve local people. This has been very challenging in an era of funding cuts. I will lobby Government to replace the lost investment and challenge partners to ensure they work together effectively. This has been a key part of my role in the last 8 years:

  • I have set up 5 joint teams across the area to focus on reducing knife crime especially amongst young people
  • I have worked with the NHS to address important shared issues like domestic abuse, mental health and sexual violence
  • I led the team which jointly commissioned a service to identify and protect victims of child sexual exploitation across our area

I will continue to show leadership to challenge local partners to work together to address these issues.
