Discussions have taken place at Downing Street about tackling crime and improving policing throughout Lincolnshire.

It follows a meeting arranged by Marc Jones, Conservative candidate for Police and Crime Commissioner, and Prime Minister David Cameron at No 10.

I told the Prime Minister the serious consequences rural crime is having for the countryside and how we need to do more to halt a growing trend in sexual assaults

The candidate said he was “delighted” to meet Mr Cameron so he could praise the efforts of local officers but also highlight growing problems such as rural crime.

Lincolnshire County Councillor Mr Jones was selected as the commissioner candidate for the Conservatives in the autumn after running a successful business for five years.

Born and bred in Lincolnshire, he has been a school governor for a number of years and an enthusiastic fundraiser for several local and national causes.

Mr Jones said: “I was delighted to meet the Prime Minister to push home the great job our hardworking police officers do as well as raise the particular challenges Lincolnshire faces.

“I told the Prime Minister the serious consequences rural crime is having for the countryside and how we need to do more to halt a growing trend in sexual assaults in Lincolnshire.

“We also talked about how Government is keeping local residents safe by protecting the police budget and investing to tackle new threats like cyber-crime.

“The meeting showed that it is vital Lincolnshire has a proactive Police and Crime Commissioner who can access those at the very top of Government and is serious about putting Lincolnshire first.”
