New PCC for Nottinghamshire comments on today’s election win

Caroline Henry was elected the new PCC ( Police and Crime Commissioner ) for Nottinghamshire at today’s count.

Caroline said:

‘Nottinghamshire has spoken out for change.

‘I’m honoured to have been elected as your new Police & Crime Commissioner. However you voted and wherever you live, I will be a Commissioner that listens and delivers.

‘Thank you for putting your faith in me. I won’t let you down.’

Ruth Edwards, MP for Rushcliffe said: ‘I’m delighted to see Caroline Henry elected as Nottinghamshire’s new Police and Crime Commissioner.

‘Her commitment and energy have shone through in the campaign and I look forward to working with her to tackle crime in Rushcliffe.’

The new Commissioner will take up the role officially on 13 May 2021 and will serve a three-year term until 2024 due to the year-long postponement as a result of Covid-19.

Caroline takes over from Paddy Tipping who held the post since 2012 when PCCs were introduced.
