Police and Crime Commissioner Elections 2012

Police and Crime Commissioner for Kent 

  • The first ever elections for Police and Crime Commissioners will be held on 15 November 2012.
  • Each of the 41 police force areas in England and Wales, outside of London, will directly-elect a Commissioner.
  • Commissioners are at the heart of the Government's programme of decentralisation, where power is returned to people and communities.
  • Instead of bureaucratic, Whitehall-led control of the police we will see democratic accountability with the public having a real say over how their area is policed.
