For the first time, the public across England and Wales will elect a police and crime commissioner who will be accountable for how crime is tackled in their police force areas.
The Police and Crime Commissioner will replace the Police Authority.
Mr Bowles said he had been speaking to people in Louth to get their views on crime and the criminal justice system.

He said: "The issues being raised repeatedly are anti-social behaviour and police visibility and concerns about the lack of police response and the failure in court to treat repeat offenders seriously.
"I want to hear the views of the people of Lincolnshire, especially those in rural areas and local businesses."
Mr Bowles said he wants to see the number of Special Constables increase from 200 to over 600.
