Sultan Alam “I have what it takes to lead change in Cleveland Police, Better policing for a safer Cleveland.
“ Only the right leadership, with passion and commitment, can drive change.
HMIC’s latest assessment puts Cleveland in the bottom 3 of all 43 police forces, in all areas of assessment:
Keeping people safe and reducing crime – Requires Improvement
Managing budgets meeting service demand – Requires Improvement
Conforming to the law – Requires Improvement
HMIC [25th Feb 2016]: “I have some serious concerns about the performance of Cleveland Police in keeping people safe and reducing crime, and how prepared it is to meet future financial challenges.
Officer numbers are down. Crime is soaring.
6457 more victims of crime compared to last year
177 fewer officers on our streets than 3 years ago
£28.85m a year is going to private companies
9 police stations being closed to the public
Seemingly never-ending scandals
My straightforward plan to deliver real improvements and better policing for a safer Cleveland:
More “ Bobbies on the beat. ” At Least 130 More officers on our streets = less crime.
Protecting Victims and Witnesses – immediate steps to correctly identify vulnerable victims and integrate safeguarding systems.
Terminate private contracts that fail to deliver value and quality of service.
Better policing standards by strict enforcement of the Police Code of Ethics.
Ensure as many stations as possible remain open to the public
No politics no excuses, just “ better policing.
