We are glad to see that our Police & Crime Commissioner candidate, Matthew Scott, has been busy campaigning across the county talking to residents about their concerns. At the beginning of January, he came to One Bell Corner in Dartford and was well received by the High Street shoppers that he encountered.
Swanley resident Matthew's father was a policeman and so is his brother. He knows what it means to be a police officer and all about the challenges they face at work. He has a six-point plan to improve safety and security in Kent:
• cut crime and reduce re-offending
• support victims
• deliver value for money
• ensure a dedicated and visible police presence
• tackle the harm caused by abuse, violence and antisocial behaviour and
• revolutionise our approach to mental health.
Matthew thinks that the Police & Crime Commissioner elections on Thursday 5th May will be an opportunity to give the people of Kent the policing it deserves after Ann Barnes' very public mismanagement.
If you have got any policing issues to raise with Matthew then you can contact him at firstname.lastname@example.org and www.matthewscott.org.uk.
