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.

Alison Hernandez

Dear Voter

The demands on the Police are becoming more challenging:

  • The rise of modern slavery, residents of the UK are the third most trafficked in the world.
  • The rise of cyber crime, an age where you are more likely to be a victim of crime online, than in the street where you live.
  • The rise of terrorism with recent attacks in Paris and Brussels.

What I will do for you:

  1. Work with the Government to get the best funding deal for the people of Devon and Cornwall.
  2. Put policing at the heart of communities both on our streets and online. Work with the other emergency services to greater effect.
  3. Support those affected by crime: victims, witnesses and the most vulnerable in our community.
  4. Improve crime reporting, especially 101. Waiting up to 45 minutes is unacceptable.
  5. Review Police Station closures so that people don’t feel abandoned

What makes me right for this role?

  • Years spent running my own business, working alongside and getting the best out of the Police. I’ve helped leaders run their organisations better in the UK and internationally. I want to continue getting the best out of the Police.
  • Proven leadership and teamwork as a national award winning former Councillor, regional award winning community campaigner, and local award winning crime fighter. I want to help Devon and Cornwall Police’s successes be recognised and celebrated.
  • Co-Founder of Torbay Social Media Café – free events helping support organisations to better use social media. I will develop Cyber Crime Cafés to keep people safe online.

Please choose Alison Hernandez as your first choice.

Yours faithfully,


This election address has been prepared by Lucille Baker, Election Agent, 9c Mill Park, White Cross Rd, Woodbury Salterton, EX5 1EL.
