Candidate - Police & Crime Commissioner

Sir Robin Wales - Candidate - Police & Crime Commissioner

IT’S TIME FOR A CHANGE

The Conservative record on policing and crime in Suffolk is awful. As the Conservative Parliamentary candidate for West Suffolk says: “We need to be much tougher on crime … so there’s a better police presence in our towns”. He should have a word with his colleague, the Conservative Police and Crime Commissioner for Suffolk, who has been in post for 11 years!

I moved to Suffolk in 2019, having previously been elected Mayor of Newham in east London. I tackled bureaucracy and waste so successfully that I froze council tax for 10 years without cutting services, funded 40 additional police officers, worked with the police to cut knife crime by two thirds through stop and search and prosecuted over 1200 criminal landlords. Our police officers had a higher arrest rate than their colleagues elsewhere.

I stand on my proven record and will apply the same rigour to improve policing and reduce crime in Suffolk. If elected I will sweep away bureaucracy, save money and focus resource on catching criminals.


My priorities are:

1  Enforce the law by improving detection rates and arresting more criminals (nine out of ten neighbourhood crimes are currently unsolved).

2  Clean up our towns: targeting county lines and taking a zero tolerance. approach to shoplifting and anti-social behaviour.

3  Invest resources to tackle rural crime.

 

I will do this by:

1  Delivering efficiency savings and re-investing in front line policing; supporting our hard-working dedicated police officers and support staff.

2  Allocating additional police to be tasked locally – let those who live in an area decide policing priorities.


The fight is between Labour and Conservative. A vote for anyone else will mean four more years of inaction on crime. Don’t waste your vote. Throw them out.
