Congratulations to two more candidates chosen by the Conservatives to stand in Police and Crime Commissioner elections being on November 15th.
Cllr Tim Passmore, the leader of Mid Suffolk District Council, has been chosen as the candidate for Suffolk. Cllr Passmore is a farmer.
He says on his website that among the requirements for the job are:
He or she must be competent in dealing with a budget of around £125 million and understand the need to keep morale high across the service whilst delivering the transformation that is required. An opportunity exists to reduce bureaucracy and duplication and make much better use of technology to make policing more efficient. There needs to be much better liaison between the judiciary, probation services and the third sector and development of more community payback schemes and prisons with a purpose will help with the fight against crime.
While in Nottinghamshire the candidate chosen is Cllr Mike Quigley, former leader of Bassetlaw District Council and a member of the police authority for the past three years,
“Police and Crime Commissioners offer a fantastic opportunity for local people to take control of local policing. I will focus all my efforts on delivering safer streets in Nottingham, and the towns and villages across the county.
“At the election on 15th November, people will be able to choose a candidate to lead their police force. As Conservative Candidate for Police and Crime Commissioner I will be arguing for a robust, no nonsense approach that makes people feel safe in their homes and the police feel proud of their great work.”
