The People’s Commissioner – for all of the people for all of the time

As a firefighter I learnt that everything is possible.

As an academic I learnt it's better to knock on doors than kick them down.

As a Cambridge City Councillor I have learnt that winning elections is possible if you listen to what people want and they trust you to do your best to achieve it.

Home Vision


Police and Crime Commissioner are elected to set the police's priorities and budget

I believe my experience, as a firefighter for over 30 years, then as an academic and now a Cambridge City Councillor makes me ideally suited to be the people's choice to become PCC.

I have a vision for the police and this website explains what that vision is, and how and why I can achieve it.

Most of all I stand for a police service that provides what the residents of Cambridgeshire and Peterborough want.

Not a service that has been cut and privatised by Tory Politicians since 2010 See more

My cuts will be to the 25% increase in violent crime and the increase in domestic violence for starters.

I am not a career politician. I have had a lifetime of public service experience and my recent service as a Cambridge City Councillor makes me ideally equipped to take on the role as 'The People's Commissioner'. See more

Lewis Herbert Leader of Cambridge City Council about my candidacy

"Dave Baigent will unite Labour campaigners across Cambridgeshire and Peterborough in a single campaign. He knows how to win elections others say are unwinnable - and this one is very winnable. We need a Labour Police Commissioner with principles who will back the police and cut crime - Dave's our man in 2016 (and only Labour can beat the Tories here)"

Daniel Zeichner MP for Cambridge

"Dave would be a first class Police and Crime Commissioner for Cambridgeshire. He has a lifetime of public service, isn't afraid of hard graft and gets results. Unlike the current Tory Commissioner I know that Dave would work hard for all of the people, all of the time."
