We are delighted to announce that following NEC interviews this week, Labour’s candidate for the North Yorkshire PFCC by-election on November 25 will be Emma Scott-Spivey.

Emma was born and brought up in Harrogate but now lives in Thirsk. She is a student paramedic and the daughter of two retired police officers.

Emma said: “The police are facing unprecedented challenges – not just from savage cuts to funding but also due to a breakdown in trust. That trust must be rebuilt and the damage done by Phillip Allott must be repaired.

“People in North Yorkshire need a commissioner who recognises their concerns and works to address them. One who puts local people above party politics.

“And our police and fire services must have a commissioner who they can trust, who understands the sacrifices they make every day and the pressures the face. They need a commissioner who will fight to make sure they have the resources they need to keep us safe.”

If elected, Emma will:

• Rebuild trust in North Yorkshire’s commissioner

• Fight for a fairer funding deal for North Yorkshire and for all those who keep us safe

• Prioritise:

• Tackling the epidemic of violence against women and girls

• Eliminating county lines drug dealing

• A crackdown on crime against the elderly

• Extra resources for dog thefts and crimes against animals

• Improving police and fire services in rural and coastal communities

• Voluntarily ‘submit to recall’ as set out in the Recall of MPs Act 2015

• Donate 20 per cent of the PFCC salary to local causes
