The Lib Dems know the value of having a visible, grounded police presence to make residents feel safer. Bath MP Wera Hobhouse and Lib Dem Council Group Leader Dine Romero have campaigned to bring a police station back to Bath for several years.
The successful outcome of this campaign, with plans in progress for a police station in the heart of Bath is great news. It will mean residents will know that the police are well and truly rooted in the city.
If elected as your next PCC, I would work with the MP and Council to develop the relationship between police and residents in Bath even further.
