Elections: Your Voice Your Police

Police and Crime Commissioners (PCCs) are elected every four years. The next election for PCCs will take place on Thursday 2 May.

Over the course of the next few months this page will highlight the important role and remit of PCCs across England and Wales in reducing crime and making communities safer and why it is important to vote on the 2 May.

We are highlighting five areas of work that demonstrate how PCCs are making a real difference:

Supporting victims

Victims advocacy is at the heart of everything PCCs do. By commissioning essential services, they are supporting victims in their journey to recovery.

Anti-Social behaviour

PCCs work closely with local authority partners and community groups to tackle ASB, which is a key priority in their Police and Crime Plans.

Reducing violence against women and girls (VAWG)

PCCs recognise that a whole system approach is needed which draws together partners from across the board to affect change.

Prevention and rehabilitation

The best way to prevent crime is to stop it happening in the first place. PCCs work with partners across not just policing, but health, social care, local authorities, and charities on innovative approaches for crime reduction and prevention.

Accountability, governance, and visibility

PCCs are the voice of the people and hold the police to account. They are responsible for ensuring the effectiveness and efficiency of policing in their force areas.
