Candidate for Norfolk Police and Crime Commissioner Named

Norfolk Liberal Democrats have announced their candidate for the Police and Crime Commissioner election to be held on May 6th, the same day as the County Council elections.

He is, John Crofts, a retired Headmaster, from Ringstead in North West Norfolk.  Speaking at the launch of his campaign, John said, “In a world where many crimes are on the rise and police forces are under pressure due to reduced funding, we need to increase the visibility of police in our communities to both combat crime, but also, just as important, to boost the confidence of our local communities. Only through understanding the needs of every person and supporting them properly can we hope to work effectively.”
