Grove isn't the one keeping us all safe
WHAT an arrogant man Matthew Grove, the new police and crime commissioner (PCC) for Humberside Police appears to be.
In your article (November 23), Mr Grove is quoted as saying he has 920,000 people relying on him and him alone to keep them safe.
What does he think the 2,000 people employed in Humberside Police are doing 24/7?
It is they and they alone who are keeping the people of East Yorkshire safe.

Does Mr Grove intend donning a uniform and getting his hands dirty? I very much doubt it.
He has no influence on operational policing whatsoever, that is what the chief constable and his management team are for.
The fact the turnout for the PCC elections in the East Yorkshire area equated to about 138,000 means that even if they all voted for Mr Grove, which wasn't the case, he has hardly been given a mandate by the majority of the people of East Yorkshire to "keep them safe".
