Tony is fighting to fix crime in Eastleigh. To help him, you just need to do this one easy thing.

Tony Bunday

Tony Bunday is standing for public office for the first time. His long career and experience mean he’s a perfect fit. He’ll fight to fix crime in Eastleigh and Hampshire. Here’s everything you need to know about Tony.

I have not stood for public office before but I do have an extensive professional background. This includes working closely with the Police in a number of different roles – I have a deep understanding of many of the challenges encountered by our local police. It’s this understanding that means I have knowledge, skills, and experience that equip me to be your Police and Crime Commissioner and make Eastleigh better. I’m standing because I have a commitment and determination to make a positive difference to the lives of people in Hampshire and the IOW.

About me

I grew up in a village on the Hampshire/Wiltshire border near Romsey and attended my local village primary school. After I finished, I went on to Bishop Wordsworth’s Grammar School in Salisbury. Despite other opportunities, I have lived all my adult life in Hampshire – it’s a place love and cherish. in 1981, I married my wife, Carol, and we have one son, Matt, who is a Southampton City Councillor and University Lecturer. I feel very fortunate to have been able to build a family and spend my career in the communities I want to now represent.

Having had a varied, and sometimes challenging career, I believe that I have the knowledge, skills, and experience required for the role of Police and Crime Commissioner – I am a very resilient person and I do not give up in the face of adversity. Hard work and fairness drive me to make a difference and challenge that unfairness that exists in our communities. As a passionate member of the Labour movement, I have the desire to give myself fully to serving both our Police Force and our community with hard work, fairness and decency.

In my personal life, I’m a passionate sportsman (love Rugby and cricket) and I volunteer at a number of organisations, including foodbanks, student mentoring and my local church.

My policies and priorities

If I’m fortunate enough to be elected, I am totally committed to delivering a range of policies that will meet policing needs and those of victims across the Hampshire and the IoW:

  • A police force committed to the needs of victims
  • A police force that works with, and is trusted by our communities
  • A police force that employs proven crime reduction and prevention strategies
  • A police force who’s dealings with all members of the public are as positive and professional as they can be
  • A police force committed to fairness and equality
  • A police force that values and protects its staff, and is as safe and rewarding as it can be to work in
  • An ethical service, in both its dealings with suppliers and contractors, and its commitment to limiting its environmental impact
