"I am pleased that North Lincolnshire Council have continued to increase their investment into making the area safer. Community safety is clearly a priority for residents and I am keen to strengthen support for this area, if elected.
“Clearly a great deal of work is going into catching offenders and most importantly providing suitable justice to reassure the victims of crime.
In my view, there is a long future in ensuring that local authorities work closely with the police, this ensures that we remove duplication and a deliver value for local taxpayers."
The other candidates standing for the role are Godfrey Bloom (UKIP), Simone Butterworth (Liberal Democrats), Paul Davidson (Independent), Neil Eyre (Independent), Lord John Prescott (Labour) and Walter Sweeney (Independent).
