“When I was elected in 2012 I promised to do all I could to make Cheshire a safer place in which to live and work. I’m pleased to have the opportunity on Thursday 5th May to put my record to the people of Cheshire, Halton and Warrington for them to judge whether or not I’ve achieved my aims. My pledge to local people remains simple – I want to make Cheshire the safest county in the country for its decent, hardworking, law-abiding citizens but I also want to make it the most hostile county in the country for those, relatively small in number, who are intent on committing crime.
A safe county, with low crime levels and strong communities, will attract businesses and jobs to our area, making Cheshire a desirable place in which to live and work. My vision is for the role of policing to become an integral part of the economic development and prosperity of our county to benefit us all.
I’m proud that, under my leadership and thanks to the hard work and dedication of the Cheshire Constabulary officers, staff and volunteers, our local police force has been judged ‘Outstanding’ by Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabulary. I’m determined to build on this ‘Top 3’ status for Cheshire in the years ahead.
With my background in policing and public service, including as Assistant Chief Constable for Cheshire, I will continue to use my skills to manage the multi-million pound budget and deliver the safest possible county for young and old alike. This manifesto document sets out how I will achieve that.”
