Local MP Tim Farron and Crime Spokesperson Cllr Pru JupeLiberal Democrat Police and Crime Commissioner candidate Pru Jupe has made protecting vulnerable women a key part of her campaign to be the first police commissioner for Cumbria.

Commenting, Prusaid: "No one should have to live in fear of physical assault. As Police and Crime Commissioner protecting women from violence will be a top priority for me and for Cumbria police if I am elected.

"I am proud that Liberal Democrats have put protecting vulnerable women at the top of the Coalition Government's agenda too.

"We have put millions into measures to prevent domestic violence, rape victim support and introducing measures to protect vulnerable girls from violence and exploitation."

Pru's other manifesto pledges to the Cumbrian public in November are clear, honest and simple:

  • No cuts in police numbers
  • A visible police presence in every community
  • Keeping the police's share of the council tax down
  • A pledge to not use private companies like G4S to do front line policing work
