New deputy to help with police role

Oxford Mail: David Carroll David Carroll

THE Thames Valley’s new Police and Crime Commissioner has appointed a Buckinghamshire Tory as his deputy, on a salary of £35,000.

Anthony Stansfeld has confirmed David Carroll, from High Wycombe, has taken up his role as the new deputy commissioner.

It is a two-year post which means Mr Carroll will earn £70,000. Mr Stansfeld’s salary is £85,000 a year.

Mr Carroll is a councillor on Buckinghamshire County Council and Wycombe District Council as well as a former member of the Thames Valley Police Authority.

Mr Stansfeld said: “While Mr Carroll will deputise for me as necessary to discharge my responsibilities across all areas of the Thames Valley, with my headquarters in Oxfordshire and my experience of Berkshire I felt it was important I appointed someone with specific knowledge of Buckinghamshire to ensure I effectively represent the Thames Valley.”

Mr Carroll said: “I am honoured to have been offered this position and be able to support Mr Stansfeld in ensuring that all of the communities of Thames Valley have their policing and crime needs met.”

What exactly have you done since taking up the position other than earning approx £6500 ?

Inevitable. These posts were going to be politicised, and although they've sworn an oath, they are going to appoint people who think like them.

What's scary is just how similar this chap looks to Stansfield. He's supposed to appoint a deputy, not a stunt double.

To be honest I am very happy as it shows the Tories in their true colours. Remember that at any upcoming election.

Absolutely outrageous. There was no selection process just jobs for a Tory chum. Cronyism is the only word for it. It's not just the Tories either Labour are also rewarding their mates with fat salaries.
