Police and Crime Commissioner Elections Police and Crime Commissioner Elections

Michael Lane elected for Hampshire Police area.

Michael George Lane - brief election statement

People in Hampshire & IoW should have confidence that their Police & Crime Commissioner is listening to their concerns and making sure they are reflected in police priorities. I will champion your priorities.

They should also expect someone with the skills and experience to create a Police & Crime Plan that enhances effective delivery at the front line of policing and maximises the impact for a safer Hampshire from a £300M budget. I know it is not just how much, but also how effectively resources are used. I will fight for the necessary resources and their most effective use in keeping us safe.

My focus will always be to keep you and your family safe. And I will seek to empower the Chief Constable and our police to do what they do best – prevent crime and catch criminals.

My priorities will include:
• Protecting and improving neighbourhood and front line policing
• Tackling domestic abuse, protecting the vulnerable
• Putting victims at the heart of the criminal justice system
• Addressing rural crime
• Seeking innovation that increases effectiveness & reduces bureaucracy
• Creating strong partnerships.

I have the skills for the job. A Commodore with 30 years’ experience in the Royal Navy – including running £100m+ projects; managing complex change programmes in tight financial times; and motivating teams of experienced personnel dedicated to the nation’s protection.

And from my time as a Borough Councillor, I know how to champion individuals and local communities; set strategic priorities; protect and sustain our values and society; and, most importantly, listen to residents.

I have the experience and the plan. Now I am asking for your support on 5th May to make Hampshire & IoW safer.

Prepared by Alan Scard on behalf of Michael Lane of GCA, 167 Stoke Road, Gosport, PO12 1SE

New Chief Constable New Chief Constable


The Hampshire Police and Crime Panel has unanimously recommended the appointment of Olivia Pinkney to the position of Chief Constable of Hampshire Constabulary.

At a Confirmation Hearing held Friday 11 March 2016, the Panel considered the recommendation by the Police and Crime Commissioner for Hampshire, Simon Hayes for Mrs Pinkney, the former Deputy Chief Constable of Sussex Police, to take up the role of Hampshire’s new Chief Constable. Her appointment follows a recruitment process held by the Commissioner, which also involved senior community stakeholders and partners from 18 organisations across Hampshire and the Isle of Wight, as well as a two-day interview.

As part of the role of the Hampshire Police and Crime Panel (PCP) to scrutinise the work of the Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC), the PCP is required to hold a Confirmation Hearing to review the proposed appointment and question the preferred candidate on their suitability for the role. Based on this hearing, the PCP then makes a report with its recommendation on the appointment.

The Hampshire Police and Crime Panel’s report will be published on Monday 14 March 2016, detailing how the Panel has unanimously approved the selection of Mrs Pinkney for the role. This decision has, in turn, been communicated to Mr Hayes.

Prior to her role as the Deputy Chief Constable for Sussex Police, Mrs Pinkney was Assistant Inspector of Constabulary with HMIC, leading independent professional assessments of police efficiency and effectiveness for the public. She also served as Assistant Chief Constable for Surrey and Sussex Police, and was the Southeast lead for serious and organised crime. Nationally, Olivia led for the police on tackling organised immigration crime including people trafficking. She was awarded the Queen’s Police Medal in the New Year Honours 2016.

Chairman of the Police and Crime Panel, Councillor David Stewart, said: “The Panel has unanimously agreed that Olivia Pinkney was an outstanding candidate for this position. The way in which she answered each of the questions posed by the Panel has demonstrated her suitability for the role, meaning that Hampshire and the Isle of Wight now have a new Chief Constable of exceptionally high calibre.”

Simon Hayes, Police and Crime Commissioner, said: “I believe that Olivia Pinkney has all the necessary qualities needed in a modern Chief Constable of Hampshire Constabulary: experience, dignity, understanding, and humility. This appointment is hugely important for the future development of Hampshire Constabulary, but it is not just about the Constabulary itself, the Chief Constable must work strategically, and with our partners across Hampshire and the Isle of Wight.”

Olivia Pinkney said: “I’m absolutely delighted to hear the Panel’s decision and I look forward to leading the professionals within Hampshire Constabulary and serving the communities across the county and the Isle of Wight.”

Broadband Update Broadband Update

Thanks to all those who attended the meeting on the 3rd Dec. Especially those who offered assistance. 

We agreed to initially pursue a self funded approach from BTOpenreach as this offered the best long term supportable solution. Once we have confirmed with BTOpenreach this is still viable we'll publish more information and hopefully engage with you all further when we can map out a plan, probably in the New Year now.. 

Attached are the handouts from the meeting.
