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

"I thought you just did diving" is the phrase I tend to hear most when I tell people what we do as the Underwater Search Unit for Avon and Somerset Police. So, I thought I would spend a few minutes to give you a flavour of a few of the things that we have been involved with over the past few weeks. - Sgt Nick Evans, Underwater Search Unit.

With the school holidays over, I've been reflecting on the exceptionally busy summer we've experienced. From the Extinction Rebellion protests that caused traffic mayhem in and around Bristol to wonderful events including Glastonbury, Pride and the Harbourside Festival, the police have worked really hard over the last few months to keep our communities safe.

Last week, Boris Johnson moved into Number 10 Downing Street and became our new Prime Minister. As he stepped into his new home, he formalised a promise he had made during his campaign; to recruit 20,000 more police officers to make our streets safer. This a commitment that I very much welcome.
