NICOLA Davies has been selected by the Liberal Democrats as their candidate for the Warwickshire Police & Crime Commissioner post.

The Warwickshire county councillor has been a member of the Warwickshire police and crime panel for the past three years.

She said: “My priories are retaining front line police numbers and neighbourhood visibility, improving detection and conviction rates and creating a victims charter.

“I will offer a clear and independent minded approach , supporting the professionalism of all police staff whilst providing a strong challenge to the Chief Constable when performance isn’t up to scratch.

“Ron Ball, and his deputy Dr Eric Wood have established the post of Police & Crime Commissioner and given it credibility.

“I will build on that firm foundation and focus on areas where improvement is needed.

“Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabulary (HMIC) has rated the Warwickshire force as ‘requiring improvement’ – that simply isn’t good enough.

“The people of Warwickshire rightly want, and deserve, a force that is rated good and is on its way to becoming outstanding.”

She will contest the election in May against Labour candidate, Julie Jackson, Conservative representative, Philip Seccombe and Independents, David Whitehouse and Ben Twomey.
