Conservatives from across Bedfordshire have voted by postal ballot and selected Jas Parmar as the Conservative Candidate for the Police and Crime Commissioner election.
Jas Parmar is a former police officer, businessman, Borough Councillor and Parliamentary Candidate and is currently a sub-postmaster in Kempston.
Mr. Parmar said: "I am delighted to be chosen as a candidate for this very important role and looking forward to convincing the people of Bedfordshire to put their trust in me in the election on November 15.”
“As a former policeman in the Met I know that this role is all about re-addressing the balance in favour of the victims of crime rather than the criminal.
“We must have more visible policing, crackdown on anti-social behaviour, and when it comes to policing in their area, we must put the public in the driving seat.
“Those are my priorities; however over the coming months I hope to meet as many people as possible to gauge their views and enthuse them about the role and my candidacy, because a divided Labour Party with a pitiful record whilst in government have nothing new to offer on policing."
Runner-up Bernard Rix added: ‘I would like to congratulate Jas on his selection as the Conservative candidate for the Bedfordshire Police and Crime Commissioner elections this November. Jas will make an excellent PCC.
"I will give him every support during his campaign and once he has been elected as the PCC for Bedfordshire.’
