My Oath: Serving the people of Hertfordshire

When I was declared as the first Hertfordshire Police and Crime Commissioner I swore an oath of impartiality.
The swearing of an oath is important because it shows both that I am committed to serve all the people of Hertfordshire, not a political party or any one section of their electorate.

I, David Edward Lloyd, of Flamstead, St Albans, do hereby declare that I accept the office of Police and Crime Commissioner for Hertfordshire.
In making this declaration, I solemnly and sincerely promise that during my term of office:
  • I will serve all the people of Hertfordshire in the office of Police and Crime Commissioner.
  • I will act with integrity and diligence in my role and, to the best of my ability, will execute the duties of my office to ensure that the police are able to cut crime and protect the public.
  • I will give a voice to the public, especially victims of crime and work with other services to ensure the safety of the community and effective criminal justice.
  • I will take all steps within my power to ensure transparency of my decisions, so that I may be properly held to account by the public.
  • I will not interfere with the operational independence of police officers.


My Commitment to Equality

As Commissioner, I have committed to serving all the people of Hertfordshire and have sworn an oath of impartiality.
With my focus on increasing community safety, I will be working to counter unlawful discrimination, harassment and victimization.

I will work to give everyone equal access to the police and criminal justice system regardless of background or ability.

I will also maintain and develop good relations between the Police and Hertfordshire’s many varied communities and hold the Constabulary to account for delivering against its own commitments to equality.
I am fully committed to the aims of the Equalities Act of 2010 which provides protection so that people do not face discrimination based on age, disability, gender reassignment, race, religion or belief, sex, sexual orientation, marriage and civil partnership and pregnancy and maternity.

I will hold the Chief Constable to account for the exercise of his duties under the act.
I set out specific objectives in my Police and Crime Plan
