My Plan

  • Deal with Rural Crime Seriously

    Deal with rural crime seriously so that issues such as hare coursing, theft of livestock, machinery, tools, vehicles and stock do not damage our local economy and put local jobs at risk. Hare coursing and issues such as theft of livestock, machinery, tools, vehicles and stock are costing jobs and damaging the local economy. An urgent review of the way rural crimes are tackled is needed to ensure our rural communities are kept safe.

  • Spend Taxpayers’ Money Wisely

    Spend taxpayers’ money wisely leaving more for front line policing. Large sums were wasted on the unnecessary suspension of Lincolnshire's Chief Constable by the outgoing Commissioner. Over £165,000 was wasted on the unnecessary suspension of Lincolnshire's Chief Constable in 2013 by the outgoing Commissioner. My experience handling £multi-million budgets will ensure similar waste is stopped, leaving more for front line policing.

  • Introduce Community Constables

    Introduce 'community constables' to boost visible neighbourhood policing by recruiting local people with powers of arrest to work at the heart of our communities.  Boost neighbourhood policing with a new 'Community Constables' scheme, recruiting local people willing to offer their time for the good of their community. This will put locally focused officers with powers of arrest at the heart of our communities.

  • Clean Up Our Streets

    Clean up our streets with a tough approach to street drinking, fly-tipping, litter and excess noise which are a blight on our towns and communities. Street drinking, fly-tipping, litter and excess noise are a blight on our towns and communities in Lincolnshire. Anti-social behaviour can lead to violent crime, domestic abuse and fear of crime. A zero tolerance approach is needed to stamp it out.

  • Focus on Crime Prevention

    Focus on crime prevention by spotting the warning signs of potential issues in our communities early to reduce the number of victims of crime and the fear of crime.Ensuring a keen focus on helping the police to be where they want to be, out in our communities and not fighting with red tape. Preventing crime occurring in the first place reduces the number of victims of crime and the fear of crime.

  • Treat Victims of Crime Compassionately

    Treat victims of crime compassionately with better support and effective aftercare. Being a victim of crime is bad enough without feeling used by the system. We must ensure that we treat victims of crime as people, not just a number. The experience of being a victim of crime is bad enough without feeling used by the system. Victims must be better supported with effective aftercare.
