As Police and Crime Commissioner, my role is to ensure the policing needs of our communities are met as effectively as possible, bringing communities closer to the police.
My job is to listen and respond to the needs of the people of Suffolk; bringing more of a public voice to policing and giving you a name and a face to complain to if you’re not satisfied.
Over the past six months, since being elected to this role I have tried to meet with as many people as I can – businesses and volunteers, local council and community groups, students and pensioners, but in a county the size of Suffolk it is a challenge to meet everyone. So if you have a question you would like to ask me or any issues or concerns that you would like to bring to my attention you can contact me directly on firstname.lastname@example.org.
Tim appeared at the House of Commons Home Affairs Committee on Tuesday 14 May to answer questions about the role of the Police and Crime Commissioner.
