David Sidwick was declared as the Police and Crime Commissioner for Dorset on Friday, May 7 2021.
After graduating from Bristol University, Mr Sidwick worked in the pharmaceutical industry and set up his own business as a consultant in secondary education sector.
Mr Sidwick says his background in "strategy, communication and resource allocation is perfect for the role of acting as the people's champion and holding the police to account".
He says his "vision" is to make Dorset the "safest county in the UK" by reducing crime and anti-social behaviour.
