One of the leading candidates for Cheshire’s top new Police Commissioner job, Ainsley Arnold, joined Cheshire Police Authority in 2009 and was elected Vice Chairman in 2010. He was also an executive member of Cheshire East’s successful crime reduction partnership.

Ainsley says: “Front-line policing in Cheshire must be maintained and further improved to ensure public confidence. I am committed to ensuring Cheshire Police reduce not only crime but also the public’s fear of crime. Smarter, more efficient ways of managing policing need to be continually explored to ensure Cheshire’s front-line officers can perform their duties effectively.”
