Police and Crime Commissioner Candidate
Nicky Massey is standing for election the be Cambridgeshire’s next Police and Crime Commissioner. Nicky is a Police and Crime Panel member which scrutinises the current PCC’s work. She has pledged to “restore trust” after the previous Conservative PCC was forced to resign due to an investigation into his possible criminal conduct. She has also pledged to tackle what she calls the “knife crime emergency”. Violent crime is rising across Cambridgeshire and Peterborough due to a decade of Tory and Lib Dem cuts. Last year knife crime rose by 13 per cent. Our bobbies on the beat are doing their best but we need police numbers back up to full strength and for policing to be responsive to the needs of local communities.
