Police and crime commissioners

Police and crime commissioners are elected by the public to ensure the policing needs of communities are met as effectively as possible and to oversee how crime is tackled in your police force area.

David Michael

I am delighted to be Labour’s candidate to be the next Police and Crime Commissioner for Bedfordshire, the County I grew up in.

As a Police Officer for 30 years and former Detective Chief Inspector, I know what it takes to keep our communities safe. Bedfordshire is a great place to live, but we all know that antisocial behaviour, vandalism and violent crime is out of hand. I want to use my lifetime of experience to keep Bedfordshire safe.

If elected, I will use my knowledge of frontline policing to implement a 5 point plan for Bedfordshire. I will get to grips with the violent crime that is gripping our towns, the anti-social behaviour that is costing local businesses, and the county lines crisis inflicting so much suffering on our communities. My priorities for our county are:

1. Bearing down on county lines and violent crime.
2. Enhanced care, concern and support for victims of crime
3. Visible community policing
4. Community police engagement and partnerships
5. Establishing an anti-racism policy for Bedfordshire Police

By working with local charities, schools and residents, I will build a Police and Crime Plan that is people-centred and gets to the root of tackling crime in Bedfordshire. As a candidate with 30 years of professional experience in policing, I will put your and your families’ safety first.
