“It is a great honour for me to have been elected as the Police and Crime Commissioner for north Wales I was truly overjoyed with the result of the election on 5 May, thank you.
I will ensure as your Police and Crime Commissioner that I will listen to the communities of north Wales and by working with North Wales Police and other organisations that we work together to deliver the best possible police service for you.
My initial priorities are to scrutinise how domestic abuse cases are dealt with the aim of increasing convictions, to encourage the devolvement of the youth justice system and scrutinise how the highways are policed in the area. I intend to work closely with North Wales Police to deliver on my priorities”.
