Meeting with Police and Crime Commissioner Vera Baird

August 7, 2013

Emma Lewell-Buck 09 smallEmma met with Northumbria Police and Crime Commissioner, Vera Baird QC, in Biddick Hall yesterday along with local councillors and residents.

During the meeting, concerns were raised about anti-social behaviour in the area, with Superintendant Andrea Henderson responding that reports of anti-social behaviour had in fact decreased over the past year in South Shields.

Emma said:

“It was great to meet with Vera, local councillors and residents at Biddick Hall Community Centre which is a great centre for the local community.

In order to hold this government to account it is essential that I listen to the concerns of local residents. Under the previous Labour government, crime fell in South Shields and I am concerned that this Government’s policies will result in crime rising.”
