Election statement:

Jacqui Rayment is standing to be the Police and Crime Commissioner for Hampshire and the Isle of Wight (IOW).  Jacqui is standing on her record as the best person to reduce crime and stand up for Hampshire and IOW against Tory/Lib Dem cuts to the police.

Jacqui was a member of Hampshire Police Authority for 15 years, and Chair for the last six. She was unanimously re-elected as Chair five times by members of all parties and independents, despite being the only Labour Councillor on the Authority.

With Jacqui leading the police authority, the force delivered a reduction in crime five years running. Jacqui has consistently fought the privatisation of policing whilst ensuring that Hampshire is a best performing, efficient Force. She delivered the Southampton Central Police Station on time and under budget.

Jacqui is also Deputy Leader of Southampton Council, but she is no ordinary politician. She has previously been national chair of a tenants’ rights organisation, school governor, pub landlady as well as managing a number of retail businesses. 

People in Hampshire and the IOW need a Commissioner on their side, not a cheerleader for yet more Tory cuts.

Jacqui’s priorities are supporting frontline policing, opposing police cuts and tackling anti-social behaviour and crime. She understands rural and urban issues and policing concerns on the Island. Jacqui as your Police and Crime Commissioner, will work with local people, listening to concerns to shape local priorities.
