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 Sidwick

Who is David Sidwick?

I am a fourth generation Dorset resident who has lived here all his life.

In my senior executive career I have demonstrated award-winning leadership with strategic skills handling significant budgets. I also ran my own business and can deliver with tight resources. I understand accountability and will work for you as your champion – not the police or any other interests.

My broad skills are ideal for the PCC role.

Why does he want to be PCC?

My motivations are the same experiences as yours. I saw anti-social behaviour being neglected, a shop lifting incident, the tragedy of drug addiction, an attempted fraud and poor 101 response, an unnecessary merger attempt and poor leadership from the current PCC.

Your issues are my issues and we need change.

What preparation has he done to become Dorset PCC?

Three years of preparation with other PCCs, a tutorial programme and rigorous assessment to prove myself. A two year full-time commitment to understand Dorset and Dorset police across all communities and areas gives a platform for change.

I have a real passion and commitment to be Dorset PCC

Why vote for David Sidwick for your PCC?

My vision is for Dorset to be the safest county in the UK.

This job is about delivering for you – nothing else. I will bring back prevention with robust visible community policing and put victims and communities first.

I will be tough on violence, drugs, hidden harms and also tackle rural crime

The mission is to cut crime and anti-social behaviour and together we will make our police crime fighters again.
