Kathryn Holloway wrote a final message on her campaign Facebook Page yesterday, "So after seven months on the Police and Crime Commissioner Campaign Election Day is here. I hope people have learned who I am from these posts - a person of integrity, from a non-political background, who is offering four years of public service to support Bedfordshire Police and rebuild confidence in the Force. I will genuinely be a Commissioner for all communities if you choose me and make sure you have a fair deal on policing in both the town and country. My plans are common-sense, affordable, achievable and have been talked through with Bedfordshire Police's senior team and together we can deliver on them."

Police and crime commissioners are elected by the public to ensure the policing needs of communities are met as effectively as possible and to oversee how crime is tackled in your police force area.
