Sir Clive Loader Sir Clive Loader said he would make sure he delivered value for money

The Conservative police commissioner candidate in Leicestershire has said he would deliver an "effective, professional and efficient" service.

Sir Clive Loader is a retired RAF serviceman who spent 30 years with the force.

He said, if elected, he would expect the same high standards as during his career with the RAF.

He is up against Labour's Sarah Russell and two independent candidates, Suleman Nagdi and David Bowley.

Police commissioners

  • Elected police commissioners will replace police authorities
  • Thirty-seven commissioners will be elected in England along with four in Wales
  • Their jobs will include setting priorities for their police force, overseeing its budget and hiring the chief constable
  • No prior police force experience is needed
  • Elections take place on 15 November 2012
  • Those in the biggest forces can receive salaries of more than £100,000

The successful candidate is to help develop strategies for cutting crime.

Sir Clive, who served as a front-line pilot in air operations over Belize, the Falklands, Iraq and the Balkans, said it was important to deliver "value for money" and ensure "victims of crime are treated properly".

The commissioner role will include the power to choose chief constables and is expected to hold officers to account.

On 15 November 37 police and crime commissioners will be elected in England along with four in Wales.
