This is my first annual report since being elected as Police, Fire & Crime Commissioner for Staffordshire in May 2021. In this Annual Report, which I am duty bound to produce, I highlight progress that has already been made in delivering improvements set out in my strategic plans, describe the role I have as Commissioner and detail how my professional team at the Staffordshire Commissioner’s Office invest some of its budgets to help keep Staffordshire safe.
As the elections were postponed due to Covid-19, I have just two more years to deliver the service and wider system improvements set out in my Police & Crime Plan and Fire & Rescue Plan that were published in December. I am required to produce these strategic plans which were developed following widespread consultation with the public, our partners and stakeholders, to ensure that the priorities they outlined matched the concerns expressed by our communities.
Essentially, I’m expecting to see these plans making a real difference to the lives of the people who live, work or visit Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent. They should result in fewer victims of crime and anti-social behaviour, fewer casualties on our roads, and fewer people who suffer due to fire or the actions of others.
