Sussex Lib Dems stand experienced candidate in Police & Crime Commissioner elections

October 20, 2012 9:00 AM

David RogersSussex Liberal Democrats have announced that Councillor David Rogers has won the nomination to be their candidate in next month's elections for Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC).

David Rogers has been a councillor in Sussex for over 35 years and has served as Chair of Sussex Police Authority. The election is expected to be a straight fight between the Conservatives and Liberal Democrats, and the Lib Dems are confident that David's experience in working to combat crime in Sussex will convince voters to back him.

"I want to make sure that there is more than one voice in this contest." says David. "The Tories expect this to be a walkover, but I am determined to give them a real fight.

"As Police and Crime Commissioner I will listen to Sussex's diverse communities and act on their priorities. But crime does not stop at county or national boundaries, and the PCC must work with others to combat these threats.

"It is not enough to just lock people up and throw away the key; we have to seek new ways to combat crime at its roots. For instance, over 90% of offenders have one or more psychiatric disorders. Just locking them up does nothing to address the underlying issues. Alcohol is a factor in 44% of violent crime, and over one million women a year experience domestic violence. I shall use my health and social care experience to improve these key public service partnerships, tackling the causes behind the headlines.

"It's going to be a straight fight in Sussex between me and the Tory candidate. I hope that you will support me to be your Police and Crime Commissioner on 15th November."
