Bob Morgan is the Liberal Democrat candidate to be the next Humberside Police & Crime Commissioner.
Bob is a former police inspector who was born in Beverley. He has hands on experience of helping those living in stress with his volunteer work in the Samaritans as well as engaging with local councillors and the NHS on wider suicide prevention work around Humberside.
He has also seen the effects of austerity on families in need in his previous role as community engagement officer in deprived areas. Building on the combined experience and knowledge has made him passionate about achieving a fairer deal for those in need.
Bob is equally passionate about supporting the wide spectrum of service deliverers from social care and medicine to teachers in school. They simply need the resources to make a difference.
Bob worked through the ranks of the Metropolitan Police to become an inspector in one of London’s hotspots around Paddington Green. He handled emergency calls and then went on to manage community officers and those working with schools.
After over 20 years in the police he took on a role supporting people in finding jobs and ways to better health. Along the way he also obtained a BSc in Psychology from the Open University - Bob has the experience, knowledge and skills to tackle issues of crime all across the East Riding.
As our next Police & Crime Commissioner Bob would:
- Invest in front-line policing to make sure our community has more named officers dedicated specifically to covering our area.
- Work with public services and the voluntary sector to prevent crime and reduce reoffending - particularly amongst younger people, to give them a better start in life.
- Back our police officers so they can work safely and effectively - including providing more mental health training and support.
