Information about the office
As at 31 January 2020, there are 44.7 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.
Information about arrangements the PCC has to make use of the staff of the chief constable or a local authority can be found on the Commissioner's salary and expenses page.
