Chris White the Liberal Democrat candidate for Police & Crime Commissioner has said that if he is elected he will restore democratic control over the role. Currently meetings are mostly behind closed doors or in front of a pointless panel that has no real power.
Chris said "If I am elected there will be a committee of councillors from across the county invited to challenge my proposals and to agree, amend or oppose them. This will meet in public and its meetings will be available on webcam online."
Chris would also have meetings around the county at which members of the public will be able to express their concerns and feedback.
Chris concluded "The Police Commissioner needs to be brought out of his ivory tower and brought into the light, so the public can see & hear what is being done in their name with their money."
