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.

Jamie Frank Bennett

Jamie Bennett was born in Brighton, grew up in the Newhaven area and now serves his local community as a Councillor in the Rustington area of Arun in West Sussex.

He lives with his wife Jo and their son Elliot in Rustington.  Jamie has 12 years of experience on Rustington Parish Council, during which time he has served as Chairman and Vice Chairman of the Council.  In 2019, Jamie was elected to Arun District Council.

Jamie Bennett said, “I want to bring back community policing, get drugs off our streets by cutting county lines and deliver a fairer deal for Sussex.”

“Theresa May’s failed PCC experiment has been a disaster for Sussex policing.  We have seen the Police’s share of our Council Tax bills rocket, yet we have nothing to show for our money but rising crime, more drugs and fewer police on our streets.”

“As a Lib Dem Councillor in Arun, I have seen at first hand the impact of withdrawing community policing and increasing lawlessness on our streets.  These have been exacerbated by Conservative cuts to youth services, mental health and road safety at West Sussex County Council.”

 Former Eastbourne MP Stephen Lloyd said, I’m absolutely delighted to endorse Jamie Bennett as Police and Crime Commissioner for Sussex, his dedication, integrity and commitment to residents means that were he to be elected I know he will do a fantastic job.”
