Police and Crime Commissioners

August 07, 2015 1:00 AM

In November 2012 the first ever Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) elections took place in 41 areas of England and Wales. The purpose of creating PCCs was to introduce greater accountability to the police but the elections had the lowest ever recorded national electoral turnout of just 14.1 per cent.

Now that the PCCs have been in existence for an entire financial year, it is possible to do a direct comparison of the costs of the office of the Police and Crime Commissioner (OPCC) with the Police Authorities (PA) which they replaced. This research note also examines to what extent the office of the PCC is being used to promote the interests of the PCC.
