Reader's letter: Speedy judgment needed

More news, no ads


I find it incredible that Caroline Henry, the Police and Crime Commissioner for Nottinghamshire, has been convicted of five charges of speeding since taking over the role in May 2021.

So within 12 months of being elected she admitted to breaking the law on five separate occasions.

There is a good reason why local authorities introduce speed limits.

It is to hopefully reduce accidents and save lives.

Although not excusable, many will have been caught speeding once in their driving career, but five times in one year?

The oath sworn by Caroline Henry when she took office includes the words integrity and diligence.

Perhaps she will consider her integrity after being sentenced in June and resign from the post.

Perhaps the old system, abolished by Theresa May when she was Home Secretary, of the police committee made up of councillors, magistrates and accountants might seem a more appropriate way of overseeing policing and be re-introduced.

Not likely though, now politicians oversee policing — PETER JONES, Farndon
