Police and Crime Commissioner Elections 2016
On 5 May, people in England and Wales (except in London and Greater Manchester where the Mayor has responsibility for policing) will take to the polls to elect a new police and crime commissioner (PCCs) for their local police force area.
PCCs are elected to hold the police to account for delivering the kind of policing you want to see. Their aim is to cut crime and to ensure your police force is effective. They are there to ensure the policing needs of the public are met as effectively as possible and to oversee how crime is tackled by the police.
