The Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) is responsible for ensuring the policing needs of our communities are met as effectively as possible, bringing communities closer to the police and building confidence in the system. The involvement of local people is essential to this work.
The PCC has been elected to bring more of a public voice to policing; to listen and respond to your needs. To do this, he needs to know what is important to you and how you view the services you are receiving.
Communicating and consulting with the local community is important to the PCC, and local views are essential so that he can effectively represent the community. See our ‘Community Engagement and Consultation’ section to find out how you could get involved.
