A FORMER chief superintendent has become the latest candidate to join the race to become the region’s first police and crime commissioner.

Paul Davison, 59, was the head of Bridlington Police from 1999 to 2000, and recently retired from Humberside Police as divisional commander of the East Riding.

Mr Davison, who has been backed by the East Yorkshire Independents Party, has pledged to investigate every crime, restore people’s faith and trust in the police service and put the public first “every time”.

He joins former deputy Prime Minister John Prescott, who is standing for the Labour Party, Conservative candidate Matthew Groom, UKIP MEP Godfrey Bloom and independent Walter Sweeney.
