Candidate Sussex Police and Crime Commissioner
‘Paul Richards is the Labour & Co-operative candidate for police and crime commissioner for Sussex. Paul pledges to put more neighbourhood police on the streets of Crawley and surrounding areas. He is campaigning for a new victims law to protect the victims of crime and witnesses. Paul wants more facilities for young people such as youth clubs and sports clubs.
Paul Richards says: ‘people in Crawley have had a rough deal from the Tories over the past ten years: fewer police, more crime. And a courts backlog that means some victims will be waiting years for justice. As police and crime commissioner I will invest in more police in Crawley, and crack down on noise, litter, graffiti and vandalism. I will campaign for more cash for the council to rebuild our communities. People in Crawley are saying loud and clear: it’s time for a change.’
