Passmores priority.ai

As PCC my ambition is to make Suffolk a safer place in which to live, work, travel and invest. My Passmore Priority for October focuses on  victims.

Victims of crime should be central to all that we do; treatment of victims is vital to building public trust and confidence in policing. I believe that victims of crime will be more confident in the police if they feel their case has been properly dealt with. However, too often victims view the criminal justice system as disjointed and unresponsive, thisis why I have made this a priority.
