I was elected in 2012 to serve the whole of Cheshire, Halton and Warrington, as Police and Crime Commissioner. It has been a particular pleasure for me to support crime prevention activities and projects in communities across the whole Force area, with nearly £1million worth of grants made available for local safety schemes.
This support has included targeted activities for young people, initiatives to divert drug users, utilising new anti- social behaviour tools and powers and programmes of activity to reduce re-offending and alcohol- related violence.
In the next four years I will:
Assist local communities in developing crime prevention initiatives;
Continue investing in services for victims to make certain they are at the heart of our criminal justice system; and
Work with Community Safety Partnerships across Cheshire to reduce crime, alcohol related harm, anti-social behaviour and domestic abuse.
