If you have absolutely no idea who to vote for in the Thames Valley Police Commissioner elections on 5th May, this is for you. Here is a brief summary of the role and the candidates.

What do Police and Crime Commissioners do?

  • It's a new role that replaced your local police authority in 2012.
  • They are responsible for holding the Chief Constable and police force to account on the public's behalf.
  • They oversee how crime is tackled in their area and aim to make sure the police are providing a good service.

    The Police and Crime Commissioner role includes:

  • meeting the public regularly to listen to their views on policing.
  • producing a police and crime plan setting out local policing
    priorities.
  • deciding how the budget will be spent.
  • appointing Chief Constables and dismissing them if needed.
