  • Matthew Scott gets my vote. He seems to me to have understood what the role is about and I'm particularly pleased to see his ideas of how to deal better with the problems Kent Police face in dealing with people with mental illness.

  • I think Henry Bolton is applying for the wrong job!! He should work for the UK Border Agency not Kent Police. His campaign sounds like he does not understand the role - it is not just about 'border management strategies'. The P&CC is there to ensure the people of Kent have a voice, that victims of crime receive the best service, that rural communities feel a presence. That wont happen if all the cops are all at the port! (The Port of Dover do have their own police force). Don't forget he is a member of UKIP - his campaign seems to more focused on people voting to leave Europe than meeting the policing needs of Kent. We need to keep party politics out of policing!!

  • I will be voting for Henry Bolton OBE, it is essential our P&CC has the qualifications to deal with the job and this guy certainly does. He has dealt with organised crime and is "one of the world's leading experts on border management strategies" something which is urgently required in Kent. We have a major problem with the CalaisDover and Dunkirk leaky borders and this man is best equipped to handle this situation. We have already had an independent P&CC commissioner how did that work out?

  • The PCC role has to be separate from party politics. Policing is about protecting the local communities not making political statements on immigration or whether we should be in or out or Europe! My vote will definitely be for the independent candidate Sandher

  • I can't see how anyone could vote for the Tory, after the Tory Government have made such savage cuts to the Police.
