Linda saw active service in Northern Ireland as an analyst in military intelligence. She is an expert in working with and between all agencies involved in tackling crime.
She continued to serve the people of Bedfordshire in the Youth Service and as a teacher. She went on to advise the Financial Services Authority, having a strategic role working with government and agencies across the UK. She has lived and worked in Luton, Bedford and Central Beds.

If elected, Linda will use her experience and expertise to put safety first. She will work collaboratively with all relevant agencies to prevent and cut crime, improving detection rates, supporting victims and witnesses and listening to you.
Linda says: ‘The new Police and Crime Commissioner is a hugely important role which goes far beyond traditional party politics. In tackling crime and improving policing in Bedfordshire, the Commissioner must make decisions based on what works rather than knee jerk responses.’
She will also make it a priority to tackle violent and hate crime. She says:
‘Whoever you are – and wherever you are – you should feel safe in your home, on the streets and on the road. When you need the police you should be confident that they will respond quickly, deal with the problem effectively and bring those responsible for crime to justice.”
Linda believes in making criminals face up to the consequences of their actions through restorative justice, something proven to cut reoffending.
On 15th November you have the opportunity to elect someone who will make your safety their priority. That person is Linda Jack.
