Your Opportunity to change Policing

On the 15th of November 2012 the election of the Sussex PCC (Police & Crime Commissioner) will take place. For the first time the electorate will have a direct say in policing. The Police Minister Nick Herbert said in a speech that this will be

"a new era in policing, when local people will elect a Police and Crime Commissioner for Sussex" .

Up until now the Sussex Police Authority has had this power; Who are they?, what do they do? I think most ordinary residents will be unable to answer that question.This will all change with the election, the electorate will be able to decide what Police force they want and how it operates. This is why I am putting my name forward to be chosen as the Conservative Party Candidate.

Decision time to choose the Sussex Conservative Candidate on the 14th July

Decision time for Sussex Conservatives on the 14th July

Many of my friends and colleagues have been asking me regarding my campaign and the selection process.

I have now passed stage one of the selection process with my interview at CCHQ (Conservative Campaign Headquarters), the next stage is to be decided when a shortlist of candidates for interview will be drawn up on Friday 18th May by the elected eligible members of the Area Management Executive along with Nicholas Soames MP the Lead Member of Parliament for the selection  in Sussex. Applicants will be advised soon afterwards.  

Successful applicants will then be invited to an interview to be held on Saturday 23rd June.  Those attending will comprise the Area Management  Executive for Sussex plus up to three representatives from each Conservative Association in Sussex together with Sussex Members of Parliament. From this meeting 2-4 applicants will go forward to interview at a Final meeting open to any member of the Party in Sussex to be held on Saturday 14th July in Burgess Hill during the afternoon; and, votes will then be counted at the conclusion of this meeting.    Please place the date of 14th of July in your diary and please attend.
