New PCC Sarah Taylor signs the Declaration of Office

Newly elected Police and Crime Commissioner, Sarah Taylor, chose to make her Declaration of Acceptance of Office in the company of her new colleagues at the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner for Norfolk this week.

By signing the Declaration of Office, the PCC pledges to serve the people of Norfolk and give them a voice on crime and policing. She also agrees to carry out her duties of office to ensure police can cut crime and protect the public, without interfering with their operational independence.

Sarah said: “I’m really delighted to have been sworn in as Norfolk’s Police and Crime Commissioner and particularly mindful of the responsibility that comes with it.

“Thanks to so many people who have taken the time in recent weeks to get in touch and share their experiences of crime or of policing. This has given me an invaluable insight to the situation for many people across the county.

“Now, I’m concentrating on balancing my PCC role with my remaining professional obligations as I work my notice period, and looking forward to fully immersing myself in the role in a few weeks’ time.”
