Police Commisioner Elections

Voters go to the polls on Thursday November 15th in the first elections for the new American-style Police Commissioner. 

In 41 forces across England and Wales voters will be able to select from 2 hundred candidates, Devon and Cornwall has one of the biggest candidate lists with 10 in places like Yorkshire it's a straight head-to-head with 2 candidates. 

The PCC in your area will hold your police force to account for delivering the kind of policing you want to see. 

Their aim will be to cut crime and to ensure your police force is effective. 

They will bring a public voice to policing and they will do this is by: 

  • engaging with the public and victims of crime to help set police and crime plans; 
  • ensuring the police force budget is spent where it matters most; and appointing, and where necessary dismissing, the chief constable. 
  • PCCs will be required to swear an oath of impartiality when they are elected to office. 

The oath is designed so that PCCs can set out publicly their commitment to tackling their new role with integrity.
