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

Stronger communities are safer communities. However, strong communities can only thrive if we continue to develop our relationships, working together as residents, local people and the police.

The Citizens Academy is a fantastic engagement tool that we, Avon and Somerset Police, use to educate the communities that we serve. With these academies, we hope to teach the local people in Avon and Somerset about what we do, why we do it and to provide them with an opportunity to see first-hand the daily workings of our police force.

The sun has started to shine and it feels like spring is finally here. The much appreciated warmth and light also marks the start of a new financial year in the public sector from April 1, and I'm sure you've all been receiving your council tax bills.

Sue's News: Rightly there's been a lot of criticism of the government's part-privatisation programme of probation services over the past couple of weeks. We are the area which so far has suffered the largest blow with Working Links (Employment), which covered the south west going into administration.
