Rupert Moss Eccardt chosen as Lib Dem PCC candidate

PCC Candidate Rupert

After an all-member ballot, Rupert Moss-Eccardt has been chosen as the Liberal Democrat candidate for the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) election in November.

Mr Moss-Eccardt said: “I am pleased and honoured to be chosen to represent the very many Liberal Democrats in the Force area. We want to make policing effective, trusted and professional.”

“We should not try to measure crime-fighting success by the number of people arrested, we need to measure how many crimes are committed and get that number down, so we can enable people to live without the fear of crime.”

"I welcome this decision," said Catherine Smart, Chair of the Cambridge Liberal Democrat local party.  "Rupert has a great deal of knowledge about policing and will be a very good candidate.  Should he be elected, his experience at the National Specialist Law Enforcement Centre will be invaluable."
