Police and Crime Commissioner Elections
After a decade of cuts to Police funding and support, the Tories have proved that they have no understanding and little interest in law enforcement or protecting the public Tony Bunday
On May 6th we will also see an election for the Hampshire and Isle of Wight Police and Crime Commissioner. We are delighted to support Tony Bunday as the Labour candidate. Tony’s approach is for “Fair, accountable, and responsive policing for all people in Hampshire and the Isle of Wight.”
Tony has an extensive professional background working closely with the police. His background includes working with those struggling with substance misuse and the homeless and has a deep understanding of the issues the police face. Tony also has “a deep commitment to make a positive difference to the lives of people in Hampshire and the IOW.”
Tony’s priorities are:
- A police force committed to the needs of victims.
- A police force that works with, and is trusted by our communities.
- A police force that employs proven crime reduction and prevention strategies.
- A police force who’s dealings with all members of the public are as positive and professional as they can be.
- A police force committed to fairness and equality.
- A police force that values and protects its staﬀ, and is as safe and rewarding as it can be to work in.
- An ethical service, in both its dealings with suppliers and contractors, and its commitment to limiting its environmental impact.
“After a decade of cuts to Police funding and support, the Tories have proved that they have no understanding and little interest in law enforcement or protecting the public.
Our police service is the worst funded in the country and has a yearly deficit in funding of £43.5m a year. This equates to 1600 staff. Labour have a strong record on crime prevention, giving the police the resources they need to do their job, while understanding and tackling the social issues that lead offenders into crime in the first place.”
