David is standing to improve safety on our streets and in particular to tackle violence against women and girls and drug dealing in the area. He said:

"As your Police and Crime Commissioner, I would work to see more police on the street. More neighbourhood and community policing working alongside specialist units to concentrate on violence against women and girls, drug dealing and serious violent crime."

Jessica is supporting David. She said:

"We have spoken to thousands of people across the constituency and crime is of the issues that comes up most frequently on the doorstep. People do not feel safe any more and this is not good enough. David has lived here his whole life and is dedicated to this community. He would serve the entire community and work with cooperation and partnership to get things done."
