Cheshire’s new Police & Crime Commissioner, David Keane, has today signed the Oath of Office, on his first day in office (Thursday 12th May 2016).
All Police & Crime Commissioners are required to swear an oath of impartiality when taking office.
The Oath is designed to provide a platform for Commissioners to set out publicly their commitment to tackling their new role with integrity. "I am delighted and immensely proud to be taking up the role. Cheshire has a fantastic Constabulary serving a great county," said Mr Keane.
"One of my first major tasks will be to develop my Police & Crime Plan. In doing so, I will be building on the pledges I was elected upon. I will be focusing on the Chief Constable delivering real neighbourhood policing and ensuring officers, PCSOs and front-line staff are out on the streets to fight crime and keep us safe. Crucially, I will continue to listen to the public of Cheshire so I can deliver the priorities that are important to them."
