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.

Donna Jones

Donna Jones has been a Magistrate in Hampshire for sixteen years which has helped her develop a strong background in criminal justice. She is committed to increasing the number of police on our streets in order to reduce crime.

She was the first woman to lead a city council in Hampshire. She has a thorough understanding of managing public sector finances; of generating new income and removing wastage from out-dated contracts ensuring your taxes are spent wisely.

Donna wants to open new contact points and increase the visibility of the police – so you don’t just see crime reducing, but you feel crime reducing too. She will do this by removing bureaucracy and working with local councils ensuring the money saved is spent on more police officers.

Donna said “The additional funding the government has committed to Hampshire is an opportunity to build a police force that works for you. From improving the 101 service to giving feedback when you’ve reported a crime, I want to make Hampshire and Isle of Wight amongst the safest places to live.”

Donna’s agenda for policing in Hampshire and the Isle of Wight includes:

Increasing police visibility by introducing mobile police desks in supermarkets and libraries, so residents can report crimes and share information easily

Putting more police on our streets by using Hampshire’s share of 20,000 extra officers, making you and your family safer

Campaigning for tougher sentences and taking a zero-tolerance approach to knife crime, helping victims get justice and taking dangerous offenders off our streets

Donna was born in Hampshire. Her professional background is in banking. She is married with two teenage sons.
