WHAT CAN I BRING TO THE ROLE

Many people have questioned the necessity and purpose of the role of Police and Crime Commissioner. I’d be a liar if I said I’ve never had the same thought.

However, the Government have made it clear that the role is here to stay, so my view is that if you’re going to have a PCC they MUST be effective and actually make a difference.

I have seen candidates state they will not interfere in Operational Policing. But how can you effectively both support and hold to account the Police service without being involved in or understanding the unique challenges of  Operational Policing ?

A LITTLE BIT ABOUT ME

I was born and raised on a council estate in South Wales. My father was a steelworker and my mother was a cleaner. I was the oldest of my siblings.

I was educated at a local comprehensive school achieving seven O’ Levels and two A Levels in a fairly unspectacular manner.  Unfortunately, like many others in my age group I was more interested in sport. I won several titles as a boxer and also played football at a reasonable level.
