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

The UK has a swiftly aging population; Age UK estimates that there are currently around 12 million people aged 65 and above currently living in the UK. Sadly, there are a growing number of criminals who seek to take advantage of our senior community and exploit the fragility that comes with older age for their own financial benefit.

I had the pleasure of attending the Grand Iftar celebrations last week. With over 6,000 guests gathered in St Marks Road it was a truly memorable occasion and I was humbled to be one of the first people to taste one of the vast vats of Biryani being served at the celebration.

On Sunday I ran the Bristol 10k something I try to do almost every year. I don't have a lot of time for hobbies in this role but I do like to make time to run. I find it gives me space to think and always makes me appreciate the wonderful area we live in that little bit more.

I'm under no illusion how difficult policing is and the challenging circumstance our police officers and emergency services face on a daily basis to keep us and our communities safe. However, it's not just our colleagues on the frontline who face abuse; abusive calls to 999 and 101 call hande are on the rise.
