Making a difference

In the three years I have been Police and Crime Commissioner I have overseen many changes and developments in policing in Gloucestershire:

  • My Police and Crime Plan – the strategy the police work to – uniquely offers everyone a stake in making Gloucestershire a better, safer place
  • By working closely with local people, I have been able to help fund 129 organisations and 240 projects through the Commissioner’s Fund which are reducing crime and anti-social behaviour in Gloucestershire. Reducing demand on the Police and is an essential element of community policing To find out more about this click here:
  • The review I began on my first day has transformed the Constabulary’s estate, replacing tired buildings that were unfit for purpose with new, modern facilities at a cost of millions of pounds less than the plans I inherited To find out more about this click here:
  • Together with the Chief Constable and her senior officer team – all appointed on my watch – I have helped bring stability to the Constabulary
  • Because of the aforementioned, we now have a Constabulary which Her Majesty’s Inspector (HMIC) described as ‘outstanding’ for planning; ‘good’ at keeping the public safe and a workforce model that is ‘sustainable and affordable’
