How do you intend to raise awareness of the police and crime commissioner’s role and the related accountability framework?
I have been very disappointed with the current PCC for Cambridgeshire who has been invisible. If the post is to be effective then it needs to be relevant to the community and seen by the people.
I have very good relations with the press and local media who follow this blog. I expect to improve accountability and transparency by:
Publishing papers by default
Welcoming questions from the public and making it easy for them to ask
Keep the website up to date and relevant
Meet with the public regularly
Work with local councillors to better engage with communities to set police priorities
See my manifesto page for more ideas.
