THE Conservative Police and Crime Commissioner Candidate for Sussex joined MP Amber Rudd for a walk around town.

Katy Bourne, who hopes to be the first commissioner for Sussex after the elections in November, was keen to get people’s views on crime and policing.

Katy began her visit in the Old Town on Saturday morning (September 8).

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.

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

Those on the electoral roll can vote on November 15.
