Marc Jones is the Police & Crime Commissioner for Lincolnshire.

The role of the PCC is to be the voice of the people and hold the police to account. They are responsible for the totality of policing. PCCs aim to cut crime and deliver an effective and efficient police service in their force area.  They have been elected by the public to hold Chief Constables and the force to account, making the police answerable to the communities they serve. PCCs ensure community needs are met as effectively as possible, and are improving local relationships through building confidence and restoring trust. They work in partnership across a range of agencies at local and national level to ensure there is a unified approach to preventing and reducing crime.

Marc was raised in a small rural Lincolnshire village before settling closer to Lincoln where he now lives with his family. Marc has been involved in the local community for a number of years including as a school governor of two schools, as well as being a member of and running various community and resident groups.

He spent five years as a Councillor on the City of Lincoln Council and took an active interest in equalities, diversity, standards, audit, planning, culture, tourism and finance. He also held the position of Deputy Leader of the Council and sat as a Board member on a range of bodies such as Lincoln Business Improvement Group and the Upper Witham Internal Drainage Board.

After completing his time on the City Council, Marc was elected to Lincolnshire County Council where he took on the role of Executive Councillor for Finance and Property, overseeing a budget of £1.2b along with a property portfolio which included 127 farms covering 20,000 acres of Lincolnshire.
