Over the past 3 years, I have been working hard to increase feelings of safety and improve public confidence in policing, but the work can not stop there. My priorities going into this term will be to ensure there is more visible policing and more initiatives to tackle drugs and anti-social behaviour. I will continue to champion for fair policing to tackle rural, coastal and urban crime.  I will be introducing more new technology to help make our roads safer and reduce casualities. I will maintain strong support for victims of crime and increase the work to end violence against women and girls.

I am here to represent the public on policing and will continue to do so for all our communities. I look forward to engaging with the public further to determine my priorities for the forthcoming Police and Crime Plan.”
