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.

Dan Hardy

Dorset faces greater demands for policing than ever before, which is why my 25 years of military, policing and crime management knowledge and experience will be invaluable if elected as your new PCC.

Since my election journey began in 2019, I have listened, learned and developed a detailed and achievable plan, that is not rhetoric and high-level party-political pledges but is an achievable, Dorset specific, well costed strategy.

I’m a Poole resident, a married family man with three generations living in Dorset.

My plan will deliver more visible policing, reduce crime and the fear of crime, better support victims and reduce reoffending. I am determined to protect our incredible county and our communities and make Dorset the safest county in the UK.

I have no hesitation endorsing Dan Hardy for the role of Dorset PCC.  He understands oversight, policing and budgeting, is of impeccable character and importantly he gets the people of Dorset.” Martyn Underhill Dorset Police and Crime Commissioner.

I served in the military for 5 years and spent 14 years in the Metropolitan Police. In the private sector I have held positions such as; Head of Risk at G4S, Crime and Security Lead for Sainsbury’s, Managing Director of the National Business Crime Solution and Managing Director of a £60m security company. I have worked strategically and collaboratively (with the Home Office, the NPCC and PCC’s) and have proved my ability to deliver benefits back to local communities, into policing and multiple industries.

I offer both experience and independence, ensuring that policing will be tailored to meet the needs of our communities. A vote for me will drive positive change, improved efficiencies and maintain independence for policing in Dorset.
