PCC Donna Jones attends Number 10 Middle East Roundtable and reaches out to community leaders to offer support

13 October 2023

Chair of the APCC and Hampshire and Isle of Wight Police and Crime Commissioner, Donna Jones attended a roundtable meeting at 10 Downing Street this week (Thursday 12 October) centred around the ongoing conflict in the Middle East and its impact on Jewish and Muslim communities in Britain.

PCC Donna Jones said: “Yesterday I attended a meeting chaired by the Prime Minister, Home Secretary, Suella Braverman MP, the Communities Secretary Michael Gove and national police leaders to discuss the ongoing conflict in Israel and the Palestine region.

“Ensuring that all protests taking place, including those planned for Saturday in central London and across the country are policed correctly, is essential.

“Hate crimes won’t be tolerated and those supporting terrorist organisations should expect to be arrested.

“As Commissioner here in Hampshire and the Isle of Wight, it is my responsibility to make sure those in fear of crime have access to support.

“Today I have written to faith leaders, local authorities and MPs to ensure communities, constituents and congregations have access to the Victim Care Service.

“It is important at this time for Police and Crime Commissioners to collectively extend a helping hand and provide the necessary support to those in need.”

Victim Support: provided by the Victim Care Service ( The service encompasses emotional support, trauma counselling and practical advice to help individuals cope with the conflict. VCS hosts a 24 hour Support line (0808 16 89 111) and live chat.
