Information about the office

As at 31 April 2019, there are 39.6 FTE members of staff in the office of the Police and Crime Commissioner (this figure excludes the PCC). This figure includes those working on the Estate Change Programme, a fixed term programme for the renewal of the police estate. The programme gives rise to no additional cost to the public as funding (including the funding of salary costs) is achieved by reinvesting capital from sale of buildings that are no longer required and through more efficient usage of the remaining estate. In addition, it achieves a reduction in the total running cost of the police estate by £2m a year by the end of 2021 - money that will be put back into front-line policing.

  • The gender breakdown of the PCC's team is 71% female and 29% male
