Key Quotes: Humberside PCC set's out vision for policing

Sarah Sanderson

Political Reporter East Yorkshire and Lincolnshire

Here are some key quotes from Humberisde's Police and Crime Commissioner Keith Hunter during today's meeting on his policing priorities.

Morale has been low and that affects performance. Staff need to feel confident they are part of an organisation that is moving forward.

My priority is to re-establish local policing teams and give the public back what they have lost.

We will continue to explore opportunities to collaborate but only if there is there is a good reason to do so. There will be no back-door merger with South Yorkshire Police. It's fair to say the brakes have been applied.
