Crime destroys people’s lives. Many victims never fully feel safe again. The prosperity, security and quality of life of communities is damaged.

As Hertfordshire's Police & Crime Commissioner, I will work every day for an effective police force that prevents and cuts crime, catches criminals and keeps you safe.

Conservative PCCs focus on your priorities:

  • More Police – Hertfordshire now has more police officers than ever before, with over 300 more officers compared to 2019 levels.
  • Safer Streets – Hertfordshire is the 5th safest county in England & Wales and has an award winning victim care and support service.
  • Lower Tax – local residents pay one of the lowest police precepts in the country.

As your Police & Crime Commissioner, Jonathan will:

  • Prevent crime – disrupt criminality and invest in ‘hotspot’ policing to tackle persistent offending.
  • Tackle high impact crimes – focus on fraud and cybercrime, domestic abuse, county lines drugs gangs and violence against women and girls.
  • Ensure responsive policing – protect neighbourhood policing in every district and work for a robust response to anti-social behaviour and neighbourhood crime. Ensure home burglary gets a police response and not just a crime number.
  • Support victims – fund high quality victim support and focus on improving detection rates to ensure more victims see justice being done.
  • Keep Herts safe – ensure our county continues to be a great place to live and work, with safe town centres, rural crime tackled and a safe road network, working with local Councils and public services to drive down demand for policing.
  • Listening to you – work to ensure your voice is heard in local policing and the police are empowered to deliver on your priorities. Deliver value for money and sound financial management.

Vote for Jonathan Ash-Edwards on Thursday 2nd May.
