Jon Whitehouse chosen as Essex Police Fire and Crime Commissioner candidate
Originally published by Essex Liberal Democrats
Essex Liberal Democrats are backing community policing, services that prevent crime (including youth services) and support for police officers and firefighters at the heart of their campaign. This is led by Jon Whitehouse, the Essex Lib Dem candidate for Essex Police Fire and Crime Commissioner. The election takes place on 6 May 2021.
"As a Liberal Democrat I believe in actions that actually cut crime, not Conservative slogans that sound tough but fail. For almost 10 years Essex Conservatives have cut funding for youth services, undermining attempts to divert young people away from gangs, crime and anti-social behaviour. Our police service is still suffering the effects of having been the lowest-funded police force in the country."
Jon is a district councillor in Epping Forest, first elected in 1999. He previously served as a substitute member on the former Essex Fire Authority.
