David Lloyd, the Police and Crime Commissioner for Hertfordshire, has been elected as the new Chair of the Association of Police and Crime Commissioners. David Lloyd said: “This is a crucial time for the APCC and I am delighted to be able to take on the position of chairman for the next year. “Through its portfolio approach the Association is now better placed than it has ever been to drive forward our policy agenda and speak out on the issues that matter to our constituents. “In particular, and in my role as criminal justice system portfolio lead, I will be working to give greater local oversight of criminal justice, which would lead to swifter high quality justice and improve the experience for all involved. “It is my firm belief that PCCs should have the same powers over the criminal justice system that they currently have over their police force: set the plan, set the budget, appoint a chief and hold to account.” Commenting on the work of the previous chairman, Dame Vera Baird QC, David Lloyd said: “Vera has been a brilliant chairman of the APCC over the last year, raising the profile of the work of PCCs and driving the Association forward. It is a great privilege to take on this role and it is one that I am relishing.”
