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.

Henry Bolton

Dear Residents of Kent,

The Home Office states PCCs… “must… take into account the need to: protect the UK border, critical infrastructure, civil nuclear sites, transport systems, and the public.” This is a serious role that requires an experienced person with the background, maturity and character to coordinate and lead the work of many organisations; to create one team and one set of goals to deliver public safety and security.

I am a former army officer, a former police officer and have held a number of senior policing, border security and diplomatic posts which you can read about at I have used my experience to improve security in a number of countries, including the US and Russia, and was made an OBE for services to international security.

As Kent PCC I will:

  • introduce Parish Constables with full police powers;
  • reduce road deaths;
  • strengthen the fight against terrorism, organised crime, cyber-crime, domestic and gender based violence;
  • strengthen border security;
  • reduce anti-social behaviour and create a support centre for those whose lives are blighted by it;
  • maintain present levels of support to victims of crime and sexual assaults;
  • work with local authorities and care providers to strengthen mental healthcare support to people at risk before there’s a need for the police to get involved;
  • apply pressure to bring comprehensive planning and transparency to Operation STACK;
  • Reduce unnecessary bureaucratic obstacles to joining the police;
  • oppose privatisation of law enforcement;
  • hold the government to account for the impact centrally imposed cuts have on the ability of the police to keep the people of Kent safe.

 My manifesto (at gives full details.

This form was prepared by Frank McKenna, 52b Broadmead Road, Folkestone, CT19 5AP, agent for Henry Bolton of the UK Independence Party
