Sarah Taylor has been selected to stand as Labour’s Police and Crime Commissioner candidate for Norfolk in this May’s election.

Sarah is a Director at a global engineering consultancy and a national expert in road safety. As a technical expert, she provides evidence on road safety and transport to court cases and Public Inquiries and she is well-used to holding organisations to account.

She was born in Sprowston to an RAF family and lives in Dereham, where she is a District Councillor.

Sarah’s background demonstrates that she will be a Police and Crime Commissioner with extensive experience and who will listen to what all of our communities have to say.

Sarah is looking forward to setting out her priorities for policing in Norfolk over the coming months, which will include:

Making our roads and streets safer for everyone.
Tackling violence against women and girls.
Focusing on crime prevention
Reducing waiting times and services for rural crime
Stopping the organised crime that targets businesses and older people
Speaking after her selection, Sarah Taylor said;

“In my duties as a Councillor I hear time and time again that there is ’no point’ calling the Police because they either won’t or can’t do anything.

“While most of us understand that resources are stretched, we must have a PCC who strongly advocates for our communities’ needs, and works hard to make sure that those needs are met.

“That is what I am asking for the chance to do.”
