Chief Constable welcomes Hertfordshire's first Commissioner
The Chief Constable of Hertfordshire has welcomed the election of David Lloyd as the county’s first Police and Crime Commissioner. In a message to all police officers and staff, Andy Bliss said that he was looking forward to working with the Commissioner to keep Hertfordshire safe.

As Police and Crime Commissioner, David will be working with the public, the police and leaders across Hertfordshire to cut crime and keep communities safe. Over 122,000 votes were counted on Friday in the first election for this new leadership role. David secured over 60% of the vote. 

Chief Constable Bliss said “the election of David Lloyd as Police and Crime Commissioner for Hertfordshire heralds a new era in how policing is governed, resourced and held to account. I believe that good policing must be fair and responsive to those whom it serves and protects; the Commissioner will ensure that the work of the Constabulary and other agencies is properly focused on what matters to the public.

“I congratulate David Lloyd on being elected to this very important role and I look forward to working closely with him as he commissions the Constabulary and other agencies to reduce crime, catch criminals and keep people safe.”

David Lloyd will officially take on the role of Police and Crime Commissioner on Thursday 22nd November.
