NEWS FROM YOUR LABOUR POLICE & CRIME COMMISSIONER Vera Baird
NEWS FROM YOUR LABOUR POLICE & CRIME COMMISSIONER Vera Baird - Delivering Labour Values: Appointed a Business Administration Apprentice to Office of PCC. Working closely with trade unions on a range of issues. No privatisation of services in Northumbria whilst I am Police & Crime Commissioner. Working with Northumberland Council to support the Community Safety Partnership programme. Stronger Together: Message from Vera Baird QC “It was an honour to be elected as your Police & Crime Commissioner, I am very grateful for the support you have continued to give me since the campaign last year. In essence, my job is to ensure that you and your family have the best police service possible and that you feel safe both at home and on our streets. I’m working with MP’s, councillors and party members to ensure every one of our communities voice is heard. Policing is excellent in our region – but I want it even better. Crime has fallen by 7.9% in Northumberland over the last year – that’s 859 less crimes and the majority of people feel confident about how crime and anti-social behaviour is tackled. But I want better results, I have insisted that every victim of anti-social behaviour will be contacted personally and their concerns investigated – this will ensure greater confidence in the service people receive from the police. Northumberland Police Inspectors and their teams are working hard with their officers to achieve this. In Northumbria, victims of crime come first – I’m sending out a clear message that those who commit crimes will have to take responsibility for their actions, but also that victims of crime will get the service they deserve and need. I will take an active personal lead in tackling domestic and sexual abuse – this is an area you want to see tackled with compassion but with vigour. We’ll stand up for the 24,000 victims who report this crime every year. I am working with the PCC for Durham and Cleveland to develop an integrated strategy on all aspects of violence against women. We are reducing crime – this is thanks to Labour people like you getting our message across to the communities in the Northumbria force area. We’re stronger together, so stay in touch and let’s continue delivering for our region.

These priorities underpin all the work that the Chief Constable and myself do – with your support in your communities, I am confident that we can deliver on these and show residents of Northumbria that Labour continues to deliver for Policing, for local government and are the right party to form the next government.” Delivering Your Priorities - “I started working on the Police & Crime Plan when I took up my post on the 22nd November 2012. Communities from across Northumbria have helped write the plan. Many of you completed my online survey, talked to me at the metro stations or in the supermarket. I have listened with great care to what you have told me are your crime and disorder priorities – land Council to support the Community Safety Partnership programme.
