My name is Jerry Herbert and I started as Deputy PCC in August 2018. My role is to support and share the responsibilities and vision of the Police and Crime Commissioner and to help him implement and deliver his Police and Crime Plan. During my time as Deputy PCC I will be seeking and representing the views and concerns of the public of Wiltshire and Swindon and reporting back to you on behalf of the Commissioner.
