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

If you know me, or read my blog last year, you'll be familiar with the challenges I'm set by my eight year old daughter, who asks me an inordinate amount of questions each day, interested in how my day has been spent, offering me her opinion as freely as I express mine!

The past year has been a real eye opener for me. To go from being a full-time student into a work environment has certainly been a challenge.

It's hard to believe that we are all talking about the loss of precious life in this country once again. My thoughts and prayers this week have been with all the people caught up in the Grenfell Tower fire.

I never thought I would be writing a second open letter with the Chief Constable to our communities about another terror attack so soon after Westminster.
