About Paul Gleeson, Police & Crime Commissioner Candidate for Lincolnshire
I am Paul Gleeson and I’m a councillor in Boston where I have lived for ten years.
A common theme of the concerns raised as I campaign, is how policing no longer meets or listens to local needs. Nobody talks to me about murder, fraud or robbery, they’re concerned about the issues that affect them every day, anti-social behaviour, drunks keeping them awake, vandalism, people urinating in the streets. Whilst the police rightly have to deal with serious crime, it is this steady stream of anti-social behaviour that makes their lives a misery. The great opportunity open to an elected PCC is to enable true community involvement in the way policing is delivered in their area.
I am standing for PCC as I am convinced that by applying Labour values of strong community and decency to the development of Lincolnshire’s policing plan, we can have a plan that is truly inclusive of all communities, that recognises the rights and as importantly the responsibilities of all of us to ensure our communities’ safety. If elected I promise to not only listen but to hear what is being said.
I will deliver a policing plan that
· Protects children and the most vulnerable
· Protects victims and witnesses
· Enables local people to work actively with the police to ensure that their communities are safe and secure.
· Recognises the differing needs of urban and rural areas
· Protects frontline services
· Maintains a fully functional police station with custody suite in central Lincoln.
· Scrutinises thoroughly G4S’s involvement in the policing of the county.
The needs and opinions of young people are often overlooked; I will seek to create the role of a Young Police and Crime Commissioner to assist in engaging with young people.Produced by Paul Kenny Election Agent, 17 Bradford Road, Boston PE21 8BJ
