Support office

A YEAR ago the public of Gwent voted Ian Johnston in as Police and Crime Commissioner.

His role is to give direction and guidance to Gwent Police by being the eyes and ears of the public.

Therefore it is pleasing to see that the Wales Audit Office have published their report into the Commissioner’s Office that shows there has been a significant increase in public contact and a range of successful methods of interacting with the public since his appointment.

Praise is due here.

It is a sad that several senior politicians of Gwent continue to personally attack Mr Johnston in the media virtually on everything he does.

I agree that is their duty to hold such bodies, as the Commissioner’s Office, to account and long may that continue, but there are other public bodies out there that seem to escape their scrutiny.

Is it not time for everybody to support the Commissioner’s Office to help give the people of Gwent the police service they deserve.

Let’s leave political positioning until nearer the next PCC election.

orr completely remove political positioning from policing.

i dont understant how a PCC is supposed to be the eyes and ears for the public. the public thinks crime is bad (m'kay) and there should be less of it. do we need a political figure to guess that?

I've got a better idea. Let's not.

I seem to recall you've written before in gushing support of Ian Johnston, the PCC.
Are you his agent, or a close relative - or maybe just deluded? I can't think of any other reason you'd have for singing his praises. But I think you're fighting a losing battle. No one will take this nonsense seriously.
