Paddy Tipping - Labout candidate for the Notts Police Crime Commissioner elections

NOTTS needs a Labour Police and Crime Commissioner to stand up for our communities in the fight against crime and anti-social behaviour.

Residents in Worksop need to feel safe and secure in their homes and streets. We all want a safer environment for our children and families.

I have lived and worked in the voluntary, public and private sector in Notts for over forty years.

Nottinghamshire Police Force is already underfunded. I will fight against the 20 per cent cuts being imposed by the Conservative government.

More than 200 police officers have already been lost. You don’t cut crime by cutting the police.

I will improve neighbourhood policing teams by employing an extra 150 police officers and 100 PCSOs.

I will prioritise reducing anti-social behaviour, which blights people’s everyday lives, including tackling drug and alcohol abuse.

I am the only candidate committed to re-opening the Worksop custody suite and retaining the Magistrates’ court.

I want victims of crime to be treated as people, not cases, by ensuring proper funding for Victim Support and will give extra resources to tackling domestic violence.

I will be the People’s Commissioner, a strong and effective leader of NottsPolice, while always listening to the local views in Bassetlaw and speaking up for you with a strong voice.
