Police Commissioners

Labour at a national and local level is committed to making our communities safer places to live, to reduce crime and work with the police in the difficult job that they do.

Crime fell by 43% under Labour, but with the Tory-led Government cutting over 16,000 police officers and having no strategy to cut crime, that record is under threat.
This November will see elections to the new position of Police and Crime Commissioners, replacing existing Police Authorities. Elections will be held in every police area in England and Wales outside London on 15 November 2012.  
The role of the Police and Crime Commissioner will be to:

* set the strategic direction and objectives of the police force with the Chief Constable hold the Chief Constable to account
* decide the budget and set the precept, along with the Policing and Crime Panel
* appoint the Chief Constable
* maintain an efficient and effective police force for the police area
* provide the local link between the police and communities
