Anthony Stansfeld PCC

Conservative Anthony Stansfeld has been elected as the new Police and Crime Commissioner for Thames Valley Police. He will start overseeing the largest non-metropolitan police force later this week.

Mr Stansfield has already warned that council tax precepts will rise in order to protect police resources. He has admitted he will support a 2% council tax rise next year followed by a 2.5% rise the following year.

He believes the move will protect the force's long-term resources.

The changes in funding will depend on approval by the police and crime panel for the Thames Valley made up of representatives from councils across the area.

Mr Stansfeld, from Kintbury, West Berkshire beat Labour's Tim Starkey on Friday after second preference votes were counted up.
