Stop Press… we are working to change the site to reflect results, feedback etc. (results can be found at BBC Politics site. Thank you for visiting, when the rebuild is complete we will publish on our Twitter site (@mypcclinks) and our Facebook page (Police and Crime Commissioner links).
On 15th November, we were asked to vote for our local Police & Crime Commissioner.
In our opinion the TV adverts haven’t shown what responsibilities a PCC will actually have and lots of people have been calling out for more/better information – that’s why we started this site!
All the regions above have links to all candidates and other information. The links to the left give other sites of interest and info that applies across regions. We hope you find the site useful.
It is impossible to capture all the PCC information out there, if you see something you think we should add please email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org Also follow us on Twitter @mypcclinks (now also on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/PoliceCrimeCommissionerLinks please visit and click LIKE)
From the about my vote booklet by The Electoral Commission:
On Thursday 15 November people across England and Wales (excluding London) will be asked to choose a Police and Crime Commissioner for their local police force. The Police and Crime Commissioner will be responsible for holding the Chief Constable and police force to account on the public’s behalf. The Police and Crime Commissioner will oversee how crime is tackled in their area and aim to make sure the police are providing a good service.
The Police and Crime Commissioner role includes:
- meeting the public regularly to listen to their views on policing
- producing a police and crime plan setting out local policing priorities
- deciding how the budget will be spent
- appointing Chief Constables and dismissing them if needed.
Here are a few more links that we hope will give you more information:
