I have held the police to account on behalf of residents, supported victims of crime and made considerable savings to reinvest in frontline policing


- Opened recruitment for 100 new Police Constables, more PCSOs and issued cameras to all frontline officers

- Established award-winning Youth Commission, nationally recognised for outstanding public engagement

- Encouraged creation of dedicated business/cybercrime strategy for Sussex

- Funding support for victims of abuse, serious sexual offences, child exploitation

- Established UK’s first Elders Commission - giving older people a voice on policing



If re-elected I will continue to:

- Deliver effective neighbourhood policing to our rural communities, towns and city

- Support victims of crime, especially our elderly and young

- Cut crime, catch criminals and reduce reoffending

- Protect our most vulnerable against all forms of abuse

- Improve access to justice for local people and put victims at the heart of the criminal justice system

- Invest in frontline policing and further improve the performance and efficiency of Sussex Police.
