POLICE COMMISSIONER: Crime prevention expert launches bid for role

A CRIME prevention expert is due to throw his hat into the ring for the commisioner role.

Mervyn Barrett, who has worked in crime prevention and criminal justice and edited journal Safer Society, launched his bid in Spalding this week.

He said: “I was born in Lincolnshire and grew up in the county and although my over three decade long career in the business of crime prevention, criminal justice and independent scrutiny has been conducted mainly from London I have always retained close links with our beautiful county.”
