Respected retired Wiltshire Police Inspector and Former Chair of Wiltshire Police Federation, Mike White, has endorsed Labour’s Candidate for Wiltshire Police and Crime Commissioner Junab Ali in the Wiltshire PCC election
“My vote will go to Junab Ali (Labour and Co-operative Party Candidate). As a former police officer I saw the damage that the Conservatives did to policing in Wiltshire over the past ten years. Cuts to officer and staff numbers by over 20%. Community policing was decimated. Can you trust the Conservatives to repair the damage they caused.
Labour are rooted in the community and Junab is an excellent example of someone who can truly represent his community. His experience as a former mayor of Swindon and councillor demonstrate he has the experience to connect with the community and represent their needs. I worked within the Wiltshire Police performance team for a number of years so have an in-depth understanding of the complexities of measuring police performance. Junab’s experience on the Police and Crime panel will be vital in helping him understand the performance information and identify key areas for improvement. As a Labour Party candidate Junab has a network of party members, councillors and community contacts that can support him and challenge him to ensure he effectively represents the public voice and public concerns.
Junab’s priorities are sensible and achievable. They can help make a real difference to the policing service the public expect and deserve.
I know that as a Labour candidate Junab stands for fairness, equality, a greener future and will help strengthen community policing in Wiltshire.”
Junab is delighted to have such a highly respected former police officer support his campaign to become Wiltshire’s Police and Crime Commissioner. During his campaign Junab has pledged to create a more visible policing presence through enhancing resources for community policing and supporting Police Officers and PCSO’s in establishing close links within the communities they serve.
