Conservative police and crime commissioner candidate Katy Bourne is asking Horsham residents to share their views on crime and policing.

Katy, who hopes to be Sussex’s first commissioner after elections in November, will be meeting locals in the town centre on Saturday (September 15).

The Mid Sussex District Councillor, who lives with her family in Ansty, will be discussing local issues during a walkabout between 10am and 12 midday with local MP Francis Maude.

All residents on the electoral roll can vote for their chosen candidate for this key position on November 15 and Katy has been selected to represent the Conservative Party in Sussex.

She said: “My absolute priority is to ensure we are all ‘Safer in Sussex’ by cutting crime and catching more criminals.

“I intend to put victims back at the heart of the criminal justice system, tackle anti-social behaviour and domestic violence, and ensure residents can see value for money from our police force.”

She continued: “I want visible and effective policing in every neighbourhood, so meeting residents to hear their views is vital.”

Conservative MP Francis Maude said: “I believe residents in Horsham and across Sussex have a fantastic Police and Crime Commissioner candidate in Katy Bourne.”

He added: “This is a crucial position, that can deliver real change and I would urge as many people as possible to take the opportunity to meet Katy on Saturday.”
