Minister’s visit

Policing Minister Nick Herbert visited Portsmouth on February 7 to promote the arrival of police and crime commissioners later this year. He met local authorities and criminal justice, voluntary, community safety and health organisations as part of preparations for the election in November.


Nick Herbert, the Home Office Minister for Policing and Criminal Justice said: ‘The arrival of police and crime commissioners will be the most significant democratic reform of policing in our lifetime.

‘From November, the people of Hampshire will have a stronger voice in how their streets are policed and will be able to turn to their police and crime commissioners to hold the police to account on their behalf.’

In ten months the public, across England and Wales in each of the 41 police force areas outside London, will vote to elect their own commissioner.
