£85,000 crime tsar used sham office to hike expenses 6,000% (and he's the first Police Commissioner to hire a chauffeur as well)

Police and Crime Commissioner for Thames Valley Anthony Stansfeld has been accused of setting up a sham office in a ‘cynical scam’ to milk travel expenses, The Mail on Sunday can reveal. In a further twist, Mr Stansfeld has now become the first PCC to appoint a chauffeur to ferry him back and forth to work.

It is yet another embarrassment for Mr Cameron, MP for Witney, West Oxfordshire, and for the Conservatives’ flagship law and order policy of electing 41 Commissioners across England and Wales, to make the police more accountable.
