We need progress

The date was November 15 2012, and Labour’s Alan Charles was elected to become the first police and crime commissioner for Derbyshire.

Upon the publication of the electoral results, Mr Charles promised to serve the people of Derbyshire to the best of his ability.

Well one wonders. I must question whether this has happened.

I’m sure that’s what we’re seeing.

The public must see progress and development for their £75,000-a-year commissioner, yet, in my opinion, he has remained silent without any significant achievements to name. I hope the public remembers this come 2016!.
