Police and crime commissioners

Police and crime commissioners are elected by the public to ensure the policing needs of communities are met as effectively as possible and to oversee how crime is tackled in your police force area.

Jason Ablewhite

Cambridgeshire holds a very special place in my heart – I grew up in Bar Hill and Dry Drayton, worked in Cambridge and Peterborough for many years and now live in St Ives.

Married for 18 years to Annette, we have two boys that go to local schools.

As someone with a proven track record in public service, I have been a Councillor for 16 years. In that time, I have held many senior positions including Mayor of my home town and have been Executive Leader of Huntingdonshire District Council for 5 years. I have been a member of the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Police and Crime Panel for the last 4 years and have recently stepped down as Chairman to focus on the forthcoming election. I know only too well the pressures and challenges that face our Police force.

Being tough on crime and the causes of crime can only be tackled by increasing frontline police strength – if elected that will be my number one priority.

We need to raise police visibility on our streets and in our communities – everybody must be and feel safe. And we must win the dominant policing issues in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough, the battle against drug dealing and drug and drink related crimes, protection of our residents from the threats of terrorism, tackling domestic violence and child sex exploitation, speeding and road safety, anti-social behaviour and tackling rural crime.

My priority will be to drive out the central and back office costs, to innovate, collaborate with partner agencies and ensure that every penny available is spent on front line policing.
