SIR Graham Bright has pledged to protect frontline policing and increase the number of special constables on Cambridgeshire’s streets.

Cambridgeshire’s Police & Crime Commissioner has also promised to tackle anti-social behaviour, drug misuse, burglars and organised crime in his draft Police and Crime Plan which was unveiled today.

He has vowed to lead the fight against domestic abuse and child sexual exploitation. Reducing re-offending is another stated priority.

Sir Graham said: “I’m a firm believer in evolution, not revolution. We have a good police service in Cambridgeshire and my draft Police and Crime Plan builds on the excellent work that has already been done.

“I have always said that I don’t want to interfere with something that is working well, but I will work with others to seek improvements in areas that need them.

“Policing cannot be one size fits all. Different local communities have different needs and I want this plan to support that flexibility at a local level.

“Each of the pledges I have made in my plan has been made in response to issues raised with me by members of the public during my election campaign.”

The draft plan will be reviewed by the Police and Crime Panel at a public meeting on March 21.

Sir Graham is hoping to get feedback from the public about his pledges.

He said: “What I want to know is do my pledges sound about right and are they a true reflection of what I think people are telling me?

“I’m asking the public what they think, which will help me refine the plan throughout the term of my employment.”

The Police and Crime Plan is available at www.cambridgeshire-pcc.gov.uk

Members of the public can send in their comments to cambs-pcc@cambs.pnn.police.uk or write to the Cambridgeshire Police and Crime Commissioner, South Cambridgeshire Hall, Cambourne Business Park, Cambourne, Cambridge, CB236EA.
