22 May 2013, 16:19

Sir Graham Bright was elected as Cambridgeshire's first Police and Crime Commissioner last November, and says his first six months in the role have been successful.

He told Heart he was particularly pleased with helping to improve the amount of time it takes for calls to police to be answered.

Police figure show 94% of non-emergency 101 calls are now picked up within 30 seconds.

His plans for the next six months include:

  • Visible policing: using the latest mobile device technology to keep officers on the streets, not in offices completing paperwork.
  • Increase the number of Special Constables.
  • Ensure there is the appropriate focus on victims of crime.
  • Continuing crime reduction.

Sir Graham told Heart "I believe we can make Cambridgeshire safer, we can make our police more efficient, we can save money, and we can keep police officers out on the frontline."

He also added that Officers will be out and about talking to residents more, to find out what local people want.
