Simon was recently joined by Mark Shelford who is the Avon and Somerset Police and Crime Commissioner. Mark discussed the role of the PCC in scrutinising the work of the Police, listening to residents, and costing and funding his Police & Crime Plan.
Simon & Mark discuss the policing goals and priorities for the area, recruitment of Sarah Crew as the first female Chief Constable of Avon and Somerset Police, building public trust in the Police, removing the excess paperwork from community policing and changing procedures for releasing prisoners back into the community to continue their ehabilitation and much much more.
As you would expect at this time of such change nationally, Simon also gets Mark’s take on the Conservative leadership election.
