PAUL DAVISON is the former Police Chief Superintendent and Independent candidate who is standing for election as the first Humberside Police & Crime Commissioner (PCC).
Paul Davison thinks that his 30 years with Humberside Police gives him a distinct advantage in the race to become the first Police Commissioner. But can an ex-police officer properly represent the views of the public and truly hold a Chief Constable to account, he asks? In his statement published on HU12 Online, he gives his answer.
Paul Davison states that his vision is a simple one: “Safe and confident local communities served by local officers solving local problems putting you – the public – first every time.” As a senior officer with Humberside Police, he says that he tested new ideas which involved asking residents what they wanted from the police. This approach worked he declares, and the “residents of East Riding benefited from some of the lowest crime rates in the country”.
Paul Davison says he will bring this approach, which is about ‘changing culture’ in the police force, to his work as Humberside PCC. He would be looking for somebody who shares his ambitions to be the best force in the country when appointing the next Chief Constable.
