My Plan

  • Fighting Knife & Violent Crime

    A key part in My Plan to make our streets safe again is to combat knife crime and violent crime generally. 

    Tackling these threats to our safety is a big job with many challenges, but I am determined to face up to the task. This will include:

  • Tackling Speeding and Road Safety

    In 2022, a total of 28 people were killed on the roads of Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland. That is 28 too many! The number is down from 38 in 2011, but we need to work together to push the number down even further.

  • Improving Neighbourhood Policing and Tackling ASB

    When many people think of what police do, they think first of neighbourhood policing. It is the neighbourhood police and Police Community Support Officers who do most of the communication and contact with the public.

  • Improving Rural Policing

    When I took over as Police and Crime Commissioner, Leicestershire and Rutland was lagging behind in the attention paid to rural policing. That has all now changed. We now have:

  • Supporting Crime Prevention

    When Sir Robert Peel founded the modern police force nearly two centuries ago he set out ten principles of good policing. The very first stated that the key job of the police was to "prevent crime and disorder".

  • Violence Against Women and Girls [VAWG]

    Violence against women and girls is a despicable crime that comes in many guises. As part of my campaign to make our streets safe again, I have been supporting the police and community groups who are working with victims of domestic abuse, rape and other sexual violence.
