by Peter Chapman

You may be surprised to learn that the election for the Sussex Police Crime Commissioner takes place next month. If you did know this, then it's more than likely you won't know who's actually contesting it!

What Does A Police Crime Commissioner Do?

Apart from drinking lots of coffee, walking round an office pretending to know more about policing than the officers, the offical blub is...
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.

Katy Bourne of the Conservative Party has been the incumbent since November 2012.

On May 5th 2016, the following four men seek to dethrone her. They Are:

James Doyle (Green Party)

Michael Jones (Labour Party)

Patrick Lowe (UKIP)

James Walsh (Liberal Democrats)

If you wish to learn about the candidates and their policies, then you can visit the following website: https://www.choosemypcc.org.uk/area/sussex Let's face it, Burgess Hill is not going to be a priority on the campaign trail!

Just 15.82% of the registered electorate turned out to vote in 2012. Will it be even lower this time?
