Clive Grunshaw has been re-elected as Police and Crime Commissioner for Lancashire on Thursday 5th May 2016. He was born and bred in Fleetwood and gained two degrees from Lancaster University. Clive is a dedicated Trade Unionist.
Clive says "The Conservative's used to think of themselves as the party of law and order but now they seem to be the party of cuts and incompetence. Lancashire is recognised one of the best performing and most efficient police forces in the country and they use this as an excuse to punish us. Thankfully the people of Lancashire made them think again"
Jane Kennedy is Merseyside’s first Police and Crime Commissioner and was re-elected in May 2016. Before being elected as Police and Crime Commissioner for Merseyside, Jane was an MP and Government Minister including time as Britain’s first woman Security Minister with responsibility for Policing in Northern Ireland.
Jane was determined to work hard to win your support and, as your Commissioner, she is committed to being a strong champion for the Force and all the communities it serves. This role also gives her an opportunity to voice the deep anxiety felt by many at the scale of the Government’s cuts to the police service and the Force's community safety partners.
