Dear Donor,

I need to raise £5000 as deposit in order to stand as the Green candidate for the post of Police and Crime Commissioner with Avon and Somerset Constabulary. It's an outrageous amount of money and only allows wealthy individuals or rich parties to stand candidates but there needs to be a green perspective.

With your help I will be able to challenge the other candidates and describe and explain green criminal justice policies.

My priorities are:

  • To tackle violence against children including sexual exploitation. Every child matters and that includes 'Looked After Kids'
  • To tackle violence against women, including domestic violence, rape and sexual abuse.
  • To initiate a serious debate about drug reform and decriminalisation.

Imagine crime falling year on year because the causes of crimes are being dealt with. Inequality, mental health issues, substance misuse and school exclusions. Address those and crime will fall.

Public trust and confidence in the police needs to improve. If they can protect children from harm; protect women from abuse; and deal sensibly with substance misusers, our communities will be safer places in which to live.

Chris Briton.

 ps. If I reach the target and save the deposit I will return cash to donors.
