Matthew Ellis has been re-elected as Staffordshire’s Police and Crime Commissioner.
The Conservative candidate said he was pleased to have the chance to continue a programme of creating a modern police force.
He added: “The day job starts again on Monday. It’s about carrying on delivering the plan I set out in early 2013 to spend money more effectively and get more visible policing on the streets across Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent using mobile technology.
“It’s about making sure communities feel reassured because they are seeing more police officers and above all making sure that we are preparing the police in every single way to deal with changing crime, to deal with the challenges of the internet which is not only a force for good but a place where criminals can do horrendous harm to individuals and organisations.
“We need to continue the work around victims and continue to grow the Police Cadet Service. I want to put some extra vigour towards all the other work that we set in train three years ago and speed things up.”
Jane Sawyers, Chief Constable of Staffordshire Police, said: “I would like to congratulate Matthew on being re-elected as Police and Crime Commissioner for Staffordshire and I look forward to working with him to continue to create safer, stronger communities across Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent.”
