Cornwall and Devon's new crime commissioner pledges to give victims a stronger voice and keep more police on our streets.

Pirate FM has been speaking to Tony Hogg after his first hundred days in the job.

He says he has seen a real enthusiasm to embrace the concept of the community playing its part to augment the policing family, given that neighbourhood policing is a traditional cornerstone but there are less officers.
 
Tony Hogg said: "In many ways this could be interpreted as a return to old fashioned values. The phrase 'I want to see more bobbies on the beat' is one I have heard a lot, and is absolutely central to what I want to achieve. This is why I have ensured that police numbers stay above 3,000 in Devon and Cornwall, and didn't fall to 2,800 as planned before I was elected.
 
"Our communities must be empowered to take more ownership for their own policing and I am more determined than ever to do whatever it takes to encourage this. I can bring people together, encourage local partnerships, develop the roles of PCSO's and Specials, and see young people play their part too through police cadets and youth initiatives.
 
"Reducing crime and feeling safer must be a team effort involving all of us.
 
"My first 100 days have been extremely busy. This role is challenging, but I am relishing the task. Yes, I admit there are those that still need to be persuaded about the impact a PCC can make, but sometimes in life you have to let your actions speak louder than words.  That is what I will continue to do."
