Laetisia Carter

Your Labour and Cooperative candidate for Thames Valley Police and Crime Commissioner: Councillor Laetisia Carter

Laetisia Carter is the strong, new voice that our communities need in the PCC role – she brings Labour and Co-operative values of justice, community and localism, and the experience, energy and authority required. As your representative, Laetisia will stand up for victims of crime, regularly engage with the public, police and agencies, ensure accountability, and work to reverse damaging police cuts affecting numbers of PCSOs, police, and station counter closures.

Laetisia Carter pledges to cut crime by prioritising action on:

  • Violence against women and girls
  • Fraud and cyber crime
  • Support for young people
  • Local, visible, accessible policing
  • Listening to the community and putting victims central to policy.

Your vote counts
At the last PCC election in 2016, Laetisia came a strong second, gaining only 8% less than the current PCC, and winning majorities in many areas. Despite the result having a huge impact on our lives and our communities, only 25% of people voted in the PCC election. Please vote on May 6th.
