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.

Keith Hunter

I am asking you to re-elect me as Police and Crime Commissioner for the Humberside Police area so we can continue on our unprecedented journey of improvement.

During the past 5 years, after a successful 30 year police career working on both banks of the Humber, with my strategy and oversight, Humberside Police has undergone a transformation few thought possible:

  • From being rated ‘Inadequate’ and ‘Requires Improvement’ to rated ‘Good’ in every area
  • From rising crime rates to reducing crime rates
  • From under 1500 officers to over 2050 – largest percentage increase in the country
  • From lowest force morale to highest morale
  • From the worst performing force in the country to being the most improved police force in the UK
  • Top 3 finalist in Police Service of the Year 2021

I did this in the face of continuing cuts from government, when other forces were reducing officers. Humberside Police now enhances our area’s reputation instead of undermining it.

The job isn’t finished yet though. If I’m re-elected at least 200 extra officers will be recruited, I’ll continue developing partnerships that will improve everyone’s safety with a real focus on domestic abuse, but also take the fight to the criminals and people who cause anti-social behaviour so we reclaim the streets and public spaces for the law abiding and ensure women feel safe and are safe. This work is all in progress now, so please trust me to continue what we have started here.

Other areas look at us now and try to copy what we have done so why would you put that at risk and hand it over to someone without the Competence, Credibility or Character to continue building our safer future?
