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 the Government's legislation webpage.
