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

My main priority over the last ten weeks has been supporting the police and other partners during the global health pandemic. However, as restrictions gradually ease and life starts to return to some kind of 'normal', I wanted to tell you more about my key priorities for the year ahead and how my team and I are working to keep local people safe.

Reflecting on the last ten days, many of us are trying to navigate our way through the easing of some of the restrictions. Although parts of the lockdown regulations are starting to be relaxed, I know our communities are still finding the current circumstances confusing, stressful and tough

Last weekend, the Government outlined a conditional, gradual plan to reopen our communities, businesses and society. I know that the Prime Minister's statement created more questions than it provided answers and many of you are still confused, concerned and anxious.

As we all start to think about Government announcements on Sunday about their restrictions "exit strategy", and how we live our lives safely until we have a vaccine, I want to take a moment to talk about a few of the things I have learnt over these rather strange few weeks:

Speeding is never acceptable but especially in the current circumstances. Our neighbourhoods and streets are busier than usual as adults and children use their local area for their daily exercise, and those who are speeding are putting themselves and others at risk.
