Festus Akinbusoye: ‘I am the national portfolio lead for crime prevention’
Bedfordshire PCC Festus Akinbusoye talks to Policing TV’s Tom Gaymor about his national responsibilities as a PCC.
Festus Akinbusoye is the elected Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) for Bedfordshire, the first black ever black PCC providing overarching governance for any police force. He is passionate about, amongst other things, making sure that the good and excellent police work that takes place in Bedfordshire, and more widely across policing, is more widely shared.
Starting out as a racing driver, our interviewer Tom Gaymor swapped the steering wheel for a microphone after injury. He is currently best known as a motorsport broadcaster, leading Sky Sports F1’s Indycar coverage including anchoring the studio for the world famous Indy 500. Tom also has an excellent knowledge of, and interest in, policing having spent years supporting policing in various voluntary roles.
In his first ever interview conducted for PolicingTV, Tom and Festus discuss what being a PCC involves, and the mission and vision behind his Police and Crime plan.
