Police and Crime Commissioners
A relatively new part of UK’s criminal justice system is the elected post of Police and Crime Commissioner. The PCC’s role is to “be the voice of the people and hold the police to account. They are responsible for the totality of policing. PCCs aim to cut crime and deliver an effective and efficient police service within their force area,” according to the body that represents commissioners.
There are no PCCs in Manchester and London, as the mayor takes on that role. Therefore, it is likely that when West Yorkshire gets a mayor, that the current West Yorkshire PCC will become defunct. There is a North Yorkshire PCC too.
