I’m here to work with Dorset Police and partner agencies to help bring about positive change.
In my current day job I provide solutions and guidance to partner agencies and communities to resolve complex anti-social behaviour cases, ensuring safeguarding is a priority and delivers community safety strategies.
I want to utilise my skills in understanding communities, housing, and policing to support and represent the local community. I also want to bring a modern approach to managing and governing public services.
In preventing crime and anti-social behaviour, I will:
To effectively protect those most at risk of harm, we must also really work together in partnership. What this means is strenuously to ensure that there is early recognition, that there is a response plan in place, and that there is the required support plan implemented for that vulnerable person.
In tackling domestic abuse and sexual violence I will:
In tackling hate crime and building inclusive communities, I will work with (this list is not exhaustive) Dorset Race Equality Council, LGBTQ plus Dorset, Bourne Free, Mencap Diverse Abilities, MIND, CAMHS, and Steps2Wellbeing.
As Police & Crime Commissioner I will aim for Dorset Police to operate as a responsible and sustainable police force that is operationally viable for now and in the future offering social, economic and environmental benefits.
This aims to improve the financial efficiency of the police force, offering an opportunity for investment in police officer numbers.
I pledge to support Dorset Police in their efforts to create an organisational culture that supports the wellbeing and safety of their police officers and staff.
I will focus on engagement with employees, to help drive morale and motivation to retain talent and passion for the important work they do.
There has been a huge increase of assaults towards our emergency workers. This is why I do support part of the Policing Bill that tightens up the consequences of carrying out such crime.
I have seen first-hand on the front line the consequences of cuts to policing on their safety and their wellbeing. It must be a priority that we lobby government for more money for Dorset Police, to ensure that we can protect the protectors.
