June 2021 Police & Crime Commissioner Newsletter
Tuesday, June 29th, 2021
In his initial newsletter as Police and Crime Commissioner, Matthew Barber spells out the five strands of his Police & Criminal Justice Plan, which will form the main priorities of his tenure.
Mr Barber states his commitment “to be the voice of the public for policing in our counties”, and with “Strong Local Policing – preventing crime & protecting communities” as one of his five strands, we hope that the next four years will see some of the fruits of this.
In the video Mr Barber explains the five key strands to the Police & Criminal Justice Plan.
