Police and Crime Commissioner Elections 2012 

A single and accountable individual

  • Commissioners will be a single elected individual who will take executive decisions, supported by a highly qualified team.
  • The principle of one accountable individual, directly responsible for the totality of police force activity is central to the Government's vision of the new policing landscape.
  • The buck will stop with commissioners, and the public will cast judgement at the ballot box, voting out commissioners who don't cut crime or address local concerns.
  • But Police and Crime Commissioners won't have day-to-day control over operational policing - they won't be able to tell a sworn officer of the crown who to arrest.
