My Record as PCC

  • Low Crime - Hertfordshire is one of the safest places to live in the country and has one of the highest levels of public satisfaction with the police


  • Local Policing Saved - unlike other parts of the UK I have ensured we have preserved our local policing model and enshrined it in the Police and Crime plan - local policing has been protected from cuts and we have been increasing officer numbers


  • High Efficiency - we have delivered savings whilst maintaining a top quality police service by investing in new technology and collaborating with neighbouring forces to deliver key functions more effectively at less cost


  • Lower Tax - As a result of good financial management local council tax payers now pay less than they did six years ago


  • Victim Focus - I have put victims at the centre of the criminal justice system and introduced a whole new range of support services centred around our new Beacon Victim Care Centre - all paid for by money raised from surcharging offenders.
