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.

Jas Parmar

Jas Parmar – community champion, former Police Officer, former Councillor – is standing to be our Police and Crime Commissioner. 

Local experience:

Jas has lived and worked in Bedfordshire for 33 years. A popular local postmaster, he worked hard throughout the pandemic to support residents.

Jas sits on the Police’s Independent Advisory Group and until last year was on the board of a local NHS Trust; he chairs a Bedfordshire business forum with 150+ members and raised thousands of pounds for charities including Bedford Foodbank and Macmillan Cancer Support.

The right policing priorities: 

1 – Community Policing: Expand visible Community Policing in local neighbourhoods, town centres and villages to tackle anti-social behaviour and speeding.

2 – Serious crime needs more than just the Police: Take a multi-agency approach to tackle violent crime, support victims of domestic abuse and support younger people and tackle the causes of crime.

3 – Support victims: Provide proper support to victims of crime and support the Police in delivering safer neighbourhoods for all our communities.

4 – Fair funding for our Police: Did you know Bedfordshire Police is still funded like a rural police service despite having big towns and an airport! Jas will fight for fair funding from the Government.

A personal message:

This is your opportunity to deliver real change for Bedfordshire Police.

After years in power, the Conservative leadership is failing.

My vision is for a Police service which works with and alongside local communities to tackle the serious crime that we see on a day-to-day basis, one that is properly funded, and tackles problems from the ground up, not waiting until things are out of control before acting.

That is what I will deliver.
