Patrick Canavan - Labour's candidate for Police and Crime Commissioner
I was the Labour Candidate for General Election and for Mid Dorset and North Poole in 2015 and for Newton Abbot in the .
I was a Governor of South Devon College for several years overseeing the construction of two multi-million pound buildings. I was also involved in developing the Strategic Plan for the College to set out its priorities. I have also been Chair of Healthwatch in Torbay
As a PCC I would act on behalf of the public including those groups who are marginalised and disadvantaged. I will support those who are victims of crime as well as those at risk of offending
Labour must offer people a voice and real power over what policing priorities should be. We must put people and communities at the heart of the fight against crime and give them a much greater say in how to spend the resources which are continually being reduced by this Government.
