Hampshire Police and Crime Commissioner
Police and Crime Commissioner serving Hampshire, Isle of Wight, Portsmouth and Southampton
Message from your Police and Crime Commissioner
Thank you to all those who voted for me. I am delighted to have won the election. I am very conscious of the honour bestowed on me and the trust given.
People should have confidence that their Police and Crime Commissioner is listening to their concerns and making sure they are reflected in the work the police do. I will champion your priorities.
I want to reiterate one promise I have made on the campaign: that I will work for all the people of Hampshire - the districts and boroughs, the Isle of Wight, Portsmouth & Southampton -to make you and your families safer.
I look forward to working with the Chief Constable and her team - they do so much to keep us safe. They are dedicated professionals and I start by saluting them for their service - without in any way limiting my intention to challenge the Chief Constable whenever that is required.
It is a great honour to be elected as your Police and Crime Commissioner and I look forward to starting the work and finding out what you think about crime and policing locally.

In order to fulfil the role, the incoming Police & Crime Commissioner must swear an Oath of Office.
