Marc Jones (police commissioner)
|Lincolnshire Police and Crime Commissioner|
|Assumed office |
5 May 2016
|Preceded by||Alan Hardwick|
He was elected to the post on 5 May 2016, succeeding the previous incumbent, Alan Hardwick. Following his election Jones chose Stuart Tweedale as his deputy, but Lincolnshire's Police and Crime Panel did not endorse the appointment, since they felt Tweedale "did not demonstrate an understanding of the principle of personal independence required to undertake the role". Jones announced on 8 June 2016 that he would appoint Tweedale to the post despite the Panel's opposition.
Before his election as Police and Crime Commissioner, Jones had been deputy leader of the City of Lincoln Council, and then a member of Lincolnshire County Council. He also stood as the Conservative candidate for the Great Grimsby constituency in the 2015 general election finishing second with 8,874 votes (26%).
Marc is the author of a book about the history of the fishing industry in Grimsby.
