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
