Police and Crime Commissioners have responsibility for delivering an efficient and effective police service in their area. Commissioners set police and crime objectives, the police budget and issue community grants through the Police and Crime Plan. Commissioners also hold the police to account, making them answerable to the public.

A Commissioner’s role is to support and, when necessary, challenge the Chief Constable. They must also work with local agencies such as local authorities, health, the probation service, fire and rescue service and the criminal justice system, to ensure there is a joined-up approach to preventing and reducing crime.
