Mountstevens-02Welcome to the personal blog of PCC Sue Mountstevens.

I am proud to have been re-elected to represent you as your Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC).

I have lived in this area all my life, I went to school here and I was a director of the family business, Mountstevens Bakeries, for more than 20 years. At its peak, we had 93 shops and employed more than 1,300 people. I have been a magistrate in Bristol for 15 years, chairing the bench on adult, youth and family cases.

I was an independent member of Avon and Somerset Police Authority for two years and vice chair of the Independent Monitoring Board at Bristol Prison for four years.

I thoroughly understand the criminal justice system. During my time on the Police Authority, I learnt how to challenge and question aspects of policing, but obviously to listen.

This blog will be partly about my diary and the things I have coming up as well as my own views on things that might be happening in the area or in the policing and criminal justice landscape. It will also include blogs from other people maybe members of my team or partner organisations we work with on subjects that are topical or relate to policing and crime.

I cannot promise that it will get updated every week and if I haven’t posted anything for a while then you will know that it’s been an extra busy time but I will still be listening.

Sue

Let's end hate crime. A very small sentence with the potential to have a huge impact if we work together to tackle hate crime once and for all.

I am under no illusion how difficult a job policing is and the challenging circumstances police officers and our emergency services face on a daily basis in order to keep us safe.

Victims often say that they want the offender to know the impact of the crime, and have questions such as "why me", or want to stop the offender doing the same to other people.
