Wiltshire Chief Constable Pat Geenty has issued a statement following the PCC election in the county
“I wish to congratulate Angus Macpherson as the first Police and Crime Commissioner for Wiltshire and Swindon. Wiltshire Police is an excellent Force with dedicated and hard-working officers and staff and a good history of performance showing a reduction in overall crime over the last five years*.
“The aim for Wiltshire Police remains one of reducing crime and anti social behaviour and keeping it one of the safest counties in the country.
As Wiltshire was the only police force to count overnight, the man the county elected as the new PCC became the first in Britain.
We take a look at the six candidates standing for the role of Police and Crime Commissioner in Wiltshire.
