Working Together to Cut Crime

I will champion our local police force and ensure that legislation equips them with the tools and powers necessary to keep our communities safe. I will work together with Lincolnshire’s Police and Crime Commissioner to tackle offences that affect residents in Sleaford and North Hykeham, such as rural crime. Ensuring our police officers can do their jobs as effectively and safely as possible is a top priority and I support the Government’s pledge to boost our force by putting 20,000 additional officers on the streets by 2023.


Supporting the Domestic Abuse Act

As a Consultant Paediatrician in the NHS, I have seen the damage and distress caused to children who witness abuse. That is why I have been fully supportive of the need for better legislation to protect victims of domestic abuse, including children.

Meeting With The Home Secretary on Policing in Lincolnshire

I met with the Home Secretary, Priti Patel, to highlight the excellent work of Lincolnshire Police and detail some of the specific challenges they face in covering such a wide geographical area - some 2,284 square miles - with many isolated rural places which are too often targeted by criminals.
