Lucinda Preston, who is currently a teacher in Sleaford, was out and about in Louth on Easter Saturday.

Lucinda said: “I really enjoyed visiting Louth and listening to people’s views on policing.

“There were clearly some concerns on the doorstep about police numbers, given some of the Government cutbacks to policing in recent years; I reassured people that as Police and Crime Commissioner I would not cut any police officers and that I’m committed to neighbourhood policing.

“We should all feel safe in our homes and on the streets where we live.

“I’m looking forward to visiting Mablethorpe next week and hearing from residents there.”

Lucinda was joined by local councillors David Hall, Ros Jackson and Sarah Dodds.

Councillor Hall, said: “Lucinda will make a great Police and Crime Commissioner because she understands the differences between urban and rural policing. She’s intelligent, caring, and focused on other people’s needs.”
