The candidates are now clear, according to The Portsmouth News.
Richard Adair (Liberal Democrat)
‘Busting villains, not budgets’ sums up my approach.
Simon Hayes (Independent)
Policing is important to us all. I’m standing for re-election as police and crime commissioner for Hampshire and Isle of Wight, as an independent non-party political candidate.
Don Jerrard (Independent)
I was born in Hampshire and have lived here for almost all my life.
Michael Lane (Conservative)
People in Hampshire and IoW should have confidence that their police and crime commissioner is listening to their concerns and making sure they are reflected in police priorities. I will champion those priorities.
Robin Price (Labour)
I have worked in Portsmouth in a free legal advice service and for the city council. I have run my own solicitors’ practice, which included criminal and family work.
Roy Swales (Ukip)
I was a constable for 10 years, injured and then retired.
Steve Watts (Zero Tolerance Policing ex Chief)
Across Hampshire and the Isle of Wight people tell me that they want the police to protect them and their families by delivering an effective and robust deterrent to criminals and those who blight our lives, at the same time focusing on supporting victims and the vulnerable. As your police and crime commissioner I will ensure that the police stand up for decent people by striking fear into criminals and bullies.
