Thinking of becoming a Police and Crime Commissioner in the future?

The next Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) elections will be taking place on 5th May 2016.

Although its too late to put yourself forward for these upcoming elections, it might be something you think about for the future.

The role of PCC’s is to be the voice of the people and hold the police to account. Full details on PCC powers and responsibilities can be found on the Home Office website.

The rules for the PCC post are particularly strict. Your criminal record may prevent you from standing as a candidate if you have been convicted in the UK, the Channel Islands or the Isle of Man, of any imprisonable offence – whether or not actually sentenced to a term of imprisonment in respect of your offence.

We’ve put together some new information on how a criminal record will affect you, together with details of some personal experiences.

We hope you find it helpful. Let us know what you think by using our feedback form.
