Every Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) must have a Chief Executive in post who supports and advises the PCC in delivering their statutory duties and responsibilities. The Chief Executive works with the PCC to enable delivery of the PCC’s vision, strategy and priorities and facilitate strategic and operational leadership of the office of the PCC. The Chief Executive also holds the role of the Monitoring Officer with a remit to draw to the PCC’s attention any actual or possible contraventions of law, maladministration or injustice.
