Statement by Mark Shelford, Conservative PCC candidate, in response to our questions.
“It is difficult for me to answer your questions. As you know the Chief Constable has, rightly, complete independent Operational Control. All of the questions you asked fall into the Operational realm. My role is to set the strategy via the Police and Crime Plan- this in turn must reflect what the residents require for their policing priorities and rest assured my manifesto contains a section on dangerous driving. I have signed up to Vision Zero and attended their night with PCC and candidates and I want to make happen in A&S. So please forgive me but I’m not going to promise something I cannot deliver other than I want to make vision zero happen. Any PCC candidate who promises more is being disingenuous.”
