Background to the Commissioner's role
Changes to the Police governance structure were approved in September 2011 when the Coalition Government passed the Police Reform and Social Responsibility Act.
This meant that from November 2012, Police Authorities would cease to exist and be replaced with directly-elected Police and Crime Commissioners. To find out more about the Police Reform and Social Responsibility Act visit www.legislation.gov.uk
Information and latest news about Police and Crime Commissioners' responsibilities and partnership working can be viewed on the Home Office's website on the following link: http://www.homeoffice.gov.uk/police/police-crime-commissioners/
Police performance is monitored by the PCC and also by Her Majesty's Inspectors of Constabulary (HMIC) who report on policing activity with a view to encouraging improvement in reducing crime.
