Download the latest newsletter from Police and Crime Commissioner Matthew EllisCould policing and justice be better and cheaper? Yes!

“Offenders could be in court sooner. Justice could be better quality and achieved faster. Victims could find the experience less traumatic and vast amounts of Police, Prosecution and Court time could be saved. Is that really possible? It is!

“Over the last year I’ve built a small group of professionals with a range of skills and expertise to help me drive, influence, encourage and cajole the different services, including policing, to work differently and spend money more effectively. It’s early days but the signs are it’s already working and I’m confident that it will result in £30million in extra productivity and savings, at least 3,000 extra hours of visible policing each week by the end of this year and more joined up services which fit the needs of victims and others rather than them having to fit the system.

“Progress on finances means I’ve asked the Chief Constable to cancel the cuts to neighbourhood policing numbers that resulted from the old Police Authority plans.

“More visible policing, services that work better for local people and a more effective system which squeezes every ounce of value out of taxpayers’ money… that’s my mantra because it’s not just how much you spend… but how well you spend it!”
