The Police and Crime Commissioner is a completely new role that was brought in with very little engagement from the public. However, the job is not to be the top cop, but to be a civilian who holds the police to account with - and on behalf of - local communities. I have never wanted to be a policeman, but I do want to make sure that the police keep us safe and respond effectively to the needs of our communities.
As Police Commissioner, I would give priority to cutting crime, but I would also want to cut the public's fear of crime. Part of reassuring the public is making sure that the police are addressing their concerns directly. This was a lesson I learned when I introduced Anti-Social Behaviour Orders (ASBOs) during my time as Deputy Home Secretary. The best ideas come only after an intense period of listening to the public and local communities.
Now I would like to do the same thing as the Police Commissioner. That is why I am launching my Listening Campaign. I want to hear from hundreds of local people - as individual citizens or through community groups, churches, mosques, trade unions, schools, colleges or universities - about their ideas for the priorities that the new Police Commissioner should pursue. I will be visiting each local authority area in South Wales to listen to people's concerns and ideas on the ground and will also use this website to gather your views.
