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.

Lola Oyewusi

This election is a choice between Lola Oyewusi, the Labour and Co-operative candidate who is serious about tackling the Tory rise in violent crime or the Conservatives who have slashed police numbers and let violent crime rise here in Kent and across the country.

As someone with strong experience working for a housing association, leading a local charity, serving on her local parish council and being active within her church – Lola has the life experiences to ensure the concerns of residents across Kent are at the heart of policing and community safety.

Labour’s top priority is to keep you, your family and your community safe. Every day our Police and Crime Commissioners work hard to drive down crime and antisocial behaviour, tackle its root causes and ensure that criminals are brought to justice. They also ensure that their local police are effective, efficient and accountable.

Lola has five clear pledges

  • Tackling knife crime and county lines
  • Getting the resources Kent needs
  • Supporting the Chief Constable with a constructive but independent relationship
  • Supporting rural and coastal communities
  • Creating a police force for all

The Conservative party are toughening up sentences for people who attack statues but have done nothing to increase sentences for men who attack women. Labour will toughen sentences for rapists and end the injustice which means someone can get ten years less for murdering their partner at home, than for murdering someone on the street.

If she is elected, Lola will always be on the side of victims and the voice for the voiceless across Kent

Thank you for taking time to read this statement and please vote Lola Oyewusi – the Kent Labour & Co-operative Candidate
