Nottinghamshire Police and Crime Commissioner is elected

Paddy Tipping has been elected as the first Nottinghamshire Police and Crime Commissioner.

Following the elections on Thursday 15 November, the result was announced on Friday, November 16.

Mr Tipping officially takes up the role of Commissioner on November 22, replacing the current Police Authority.

As Commissioner his role includes:

  • Holding the Chief Constable to account
  • Publishing a Police and Crime Plan
  • Setting the Force budget and precept
  • Regularly engaging with the public and communities
  • Appointing, and where necessary dismissing, the Chief Constable

 During the election campaign, Paddy Tipping, a former MP, pledged to:

  • Fight for extra resources
  • Improve and enhance neighbourhood policing by recruiting an extra 150 Police Officers backed by 100 more PCSOs
  • Work with local Councils and others to cut anti-social behaviour by 50%
  • Make sure that the victims of crime are treated as people, not cases, and properly fund Victim Support
  • Give extra priority and resources to domestic violence and crimes against women
  • Be fair and honest; protecting Council taxpayers money

Paddy Tipping said: “Nottinghamshire is a great place to live but we all want a better and safer environment for our families and communities. Everyone should feel safe and secure in their homes and streets. I am committed to working with local people for change. I want to ensure that our Police listen and respond to the views of local residents. Public concerns are my concerns and I’ll speak up for local people with a strong voice.”
