You will have heard by now that the government have announced that this year’s police and crime commissioner elections have been postponed. This is disappointing news but given the nature of the threat we face it is a decision I wholly support. As a result I am suspending my campaign for the duration of the current crisis but look forward to working with you and being your candidate at the election in a year’s time.
In the meantime I will remain Police and Crime Commissioner for Hertfordshire and will be focussing all my efforts on dealing with the current crisis. We have an excellent police force that is well prepared and resourced and is working closely with other emergency services, local authorities and partners. I am confident we are well placed to meet this challenge.
