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

Firstly, I would like to start by wishing you all a happy New Year. With the arrival of 2020, my team are looking ahead to May's PCC elections, which brings me on to my own news; after two exciting, challenging and productive terms as an independent PCC, I have decided I will not put myself forward for re-election.

This week, you might have heard of the tragic death of a teenager in Bedminster and the conviction of a 14-year-old boy for manslaughter. I'm sure other instances of arrests and charges in connection with serious violence or knife crime will be of concern to everyone within our communities. Sadly, knife crime continues it be an issue across the country.

Hi, I'm Hugo. I'm seven years old. I am tall (17 hands apparently) and have a shiny black coat. I grew up on a quiet family farm in Yorkshire and, because of my quiet and placid nature, I was chosen for a trial with the Avon and Somerset Police Mounted Section in May 2018.
