Letter from PCC Vera Baird to Constituents

2nd June 2016

Dear Resident,

I would like to take this opportunity to thank your readers for the support they gave me in the recent Police & Crime Commissioner election.

It was rewarding to see the turnout double to more than 32% and I was honoured to receive more than 180,000 votes – this result has given me an increased mandate to ensure that Northumbria Police continues to deliver the priorities that are important to you.

Over the next few months I will be out and about in local communities, ensuring that the priorities you set in the Police & Crime Plan in 2013 for Northumbria Police are relevant today – I want you to be part of it.  You can be assured that our work in tackling anti-social behaviour, ensuring victims of crime are at the heart of everything we do and remaining a leader in tackling violence against women and girls will continue.

The communities that are served by Northumbria Police are worthy of the greatest effort and I will continue to stand up for Northumbria and ensure it continues to remain one of the safest places in the country to live and work.

Best wishes


Vera Baird QC
