On the Thursday 5th May we go to the polls to elect a new Police and Crime Commissioner. Labour's candidate, George Adamson, is committed to keeping local Bobbies on the beat. He served as a police officer for 17 years and knows how the service works and the issue it faces daily.
The current Tory PCC spends £1.2m on his private office but George wants to protect frontline policing instead. He wants to ensure victims are supported to the highest standard and keep PCC office costs low.
The Tory cuts to frontline policing are frightening. We used to have 2 PCs supported by one PCSO in our ward. Today we only have 2 PCSOs - with limited powers. Our police station has been shut and soon the sergeant who manages our area will lose his job. This has been a disaster for Stoke and policing.
However, to change this we all need to go out and vote on May 5th.
Vote Labour, Vote George Adamson on 5th May.
The Tories are spending vast amounts of money to win this election but the Labour Party relies on voluntary effort. If you can help please use the "Volunteer" button on this site to let us know what you can do.
