Cambridgeshire Police and Crime Commissioner, Sir Graham Bright, has announced that he will not put himself forward as a candidate for next year’s Police and Crime Commissioner elections.
Sir Graham was elected to office in November 2012 as the first Police and Crime Commissioner for Cambridgeshire. In that time he has overseen many changes in the force as he and his team have worked closely with the Constabulary to maintain effective policing in the face of significant budget reductions.
Speaking about his decision, Sir Graham says, “It has been an enormous honour and privilege for me to serve the people as Cambridgeshire’s first Police and Crime Commissioner. This is an immensely satisfying role and I have relished the challenges posed by the changes we have had to make in order to continue to deliver an effective police force in a period of reducing budgets.
