Police support for our rural communities

Residents and businesses in rural communities are more geographically isolated which can make them more vulnerable to crime.

Avon and Somerset Police already has a strong Rural Affairs Team made up of officers and staff who understand and value the countryside, but I believe they need more resources.

If you elect me, I will ensure that the Rural Affairs Team has what it needs to support rural communities and catch the criminals who target them.
