Conservative Marc Jones wins third term as Lincolnshire Police and Crime Commissioner





Conservative Marc Jones has been elected for a third term as Lincolnshire’s Police and Crime Commissioner - although he did see his margin of victory vastly reduced.

Mr Jones fought off competition from ex-police officers Mike Horder (Labour) and David Dickason (English Democrats), as well as West Lindsey District Council Deputy Leader Lesley Rollings (Liberal Democrats) and cybersecurity consultant Peter Escreet (Reform UK).

He won by a majority of just under 8,000 votes, with Labour’s Mike Horder finishing second, Reform’s Peter Escreet in third, the Liberal Democrat Lesley Rollings fourth and English Democrat David Dickason fifth.

However, that’s down from a 68,503 margin of victory over Labour in 2021 - and marks a 16% swing from Conservative to Labour.

Turnout dipped below 20% for the second time in the history of the role, and the 19.08% figure made it the second lowest in Lincolnshire Police and Crime Commissioner elections — the first took place in 2012 (2021 was 31.25%, 2016 was 20.7%, 2012 was 15.28%).

Turnout varied across the county - with the figure dipping to just 15% in South Holland.

It wasn’t plain sailing for the incumbent though, who came 2nd in the Lincoln votes by almost 4,000 ballots, as the city backed Labour’s Mike Horder — but it wasn’t enough to change the result across the county.

Marc Jones will now enjoy a third term as Lincolnshire Police and Crime Commissioner, having first been elected in 2016. He’s only the second ever holder of the position, which was created in 2012.
