Your chance to quiz police commissioner candidates


People will have the chance today (Tuesday) to meet and question the candidates vying to become the county’s first police commissioner.

David Lloyd – currently chairman of Herts Police Authority, deputy leader of Herts County Council and councillor for Watling on Dacorum Borough Council – will be the Conservative candidate.

Sherma Batson, a cabinet member on Stevenage Borough Council and a member of the police authority from 2005 to 2009, will represent Labour.

The police commissioner will take over the job currently carried out by the police authority of setting force policy, following an election on November 15.

The hustings take place at Leverstock Green Village Hall today from 5.50pm to 7pm.
