Police and Crime Commissioner Candidate

Avon and Somerset - Mark Weston

My name is Mark and I am the Conservative Police and Crime Commissioner candidate for the Avon and Somerset Police Force. I am the Leader of the Conservatives on Bristol City Council, where I have been a Councillor for nearly ten years. I live with my family in North Bristol.As a member of the Avon and Somerset Police and Crime Panel, I have always been a fan of neighbourhood policing. As a councillor from a ward in which crime has historically been a problem, I know how effective it can be if the police get out of their patrol cars and engage with the community. 

Gloucestershire - Will Windsor-Clive

I am a 55 year old family man living in Redmarley, with my wife and three children, born and brought up on the farm that I run. As a farmer I enjoy the benefits of rural life as well as looking after my numerous pets and horses.

Dorset - Andrew Graham

My name is Andrew Graham and I have dedicated my life to ensuring the security of our country. With my experience and commitment to keeping people safe, I believe that I will be an effective Police and Crime Commissioner for Dorset. Dorset needs someone who understands and appreciates the effect of crime on communities, and having been burgled I understand the sense of intrusion, hurt and insecurity crime leaves behind.

Cleveland - Matthew Vickers

I've lived in the area all my life - I was born in North Tees Hospital, attended the local school, Newtown & Grangefield, and graduated from Teesside University. After completing my degree in Business Management I worked in retail management for companies including Woolworths, Big W & Home Bargains. This meant that I was involved in many of the high streets and retail parks throughout the area, and gave me an invaluable insight into the makeup and environment of the local area.  

West Midlands - Les Jones

The West Midlands deserves a hard working Police and Crime Commissioner who will always put residents first. People should be confident he is listening to their concerns and will make sure that the priorities of the police reflect that.If elected, I'll work with Government and local communities to do that.

Northumbria - Stewart Hay

I am a local man in Northumberland Tyne & Wear, currently working as a criminal law consultant solicitor across the local courts. With a strong service record in Northumbria Police spanning three decades as well as my time as a lawyer, I have four decades of experience in the local criminal justice system. 

North Wales - Matt Wright

The Police and Crime Commissioner elections are not about appointing another policeman to oversee the police - we already have a Chief Constable and excellent senior police officers. These elections are more than that. It is about electing a public representative to champion public priorities for policing, spend your money wisely and keep our community safer and more secure.

My name is Peter and I was born in Darlington and went to local state schools. Over the last 32 years I have lived in Mowden, in Faverdale and just off Hummersknott Avenue.I now work as a healthcare consultant, supporting mainly small businesses and manufacturers of medical technology. I previously worked in a local newsagent, Darlington railway station and the Newton Aycliffe Royal Mail sorting office.
