My brief from the Home Secretary is to cut crime but I want to go beyond that. I want there to be less crime, of course, but I also want to tackle anti-social behaviour – things that aren’t regarded as crimes but which blight our communities – and in doing so make Gloucestershire an even better place to live and work
In order to achieve that, I produced a Police and Crime Plan based on my own views and experience and what Gloucestershire residents told me they wanted before the first election. The plan can be summarised under six headings or priorities as follows: 'Accessibility and accountability'; 'Older but not overlooked'; 'Young people becoming adults'; 'Safe days and nights for all'; 'Safe and social driving' and 'Safer cyber'.
You can see the plan in detail here but here is a brief explanation of what I mean by those priorities:
