Assembly Member backs Independent for Police Commissioner role

November 11, 2012 1:02 PM

The Welsh Liberal Democrat Assembly Member for South Wales West, Peter Black, has given his backing to Independent candidate, Mike Baker in Thursday's election for a Police Commissioner for the South Wales area.

Mr. Black met Mr. Baker today at the remembrance march in Bridgend and was impressed with both his experience and commitment to the role.

"The Welsh Liberal Democrats are not contesting this election because we believe that the Police should be above party politics," said Mr. Black. "My vote inevitably will therefore go to one of the independent candidates.

"Mike Baker is a retired Police Officer, having served across the South Wales Police area for 30 years. He is currently working as a civil and criminal solicitor within the South Wales area. As such he has experience on both sides of the fence, being familiar with the system as well as the demands put on a modern police force.

"It seems to me that the Police Commissioner role was designed with people like Mike Baker in mind, an independently minded individual, who knows what is needed to ensure that front line policing gets the resources and support it needs. I will be giving my vote to Mike Baker on Thursday and I urge others to do so as well."
