Ron Hogg

Ron Hogg is the police and crime commissioner for the Durham Constabulary force area.

As your Police and Crime Commissioner I promise to listen to your needs, seek out the concerns of all and tackle them. I worked as a police officer for over 30 years, serving in Police Forces across the region including Durham and I’ve seen first-hand how neighbourhood policing can improve communities.

In 1973, I started my professional life as a teacher of History and Sociology after studying politics at York University. I made the move to policing in 1978 and had a full and varied career including spending time at HMIC, holding the national portfolio for the policing of football, and becoming Assistant Chief Constable in Durham in 1998. I finished my policing career as Deputy Chief Constable of Cleveland in 2008. I then moved on to work in Children’s Safeguarding at Sunderland County Council.

In 2012 I decided to go back to my roots and combine my interest in politics with my years of policing experience to become the first Durham Police and Crime Commissioner. I am here to be the voice of the local people by listening and responding to their needs. My vision is to “inspire confidence in policing by ensuring efficient and effective services are delivered to support victims and keep all our communities safe.”
