As your Police and Crime Commissioner I am elected by you the public to hold the Chief Constable and the force to account – I am your voice in the force, making the police answerable to the communities they serve.
I am responsible for hiring a chief constable, setting the force’s budget and strategic priorities and overseeing other areas of the local criminal justice system, such as victim support services.
My office publishes regular information to show you how I am performing against my election promises, and I am held to account on your behalf by a specialist Police and Crime Panel.

My Police and Crime Plan sets out how your priorities will be acted on by Northumbria Police, covering the years 2021 to 2025. It was written after a major region-wide consultation asking you the public how I should hold the force to account.
The North East is one of the safest places in the country and my job is to ensure Northumbria Police maintain their great record here. That’s why my number one priority is fighting crime in our region.
I will continue to fight for a well-resourced police force to ensure public safety, but we cannot simply arrest our way out of crime. We need to keep working to intervene and to stop crime in its tracks.
Crime, and the fear of crime, can cause far-reaching damage both to individuals and local communities. I want to make sure there is always support available for victims or parts of our region that have been hit by crime.
