The role of the Police and Crime Commissioner

The elected Police and Crime Commissioner for the Humberside policing area covers the following local authority areas -

  • East Riding of Yorkshire Council
  • Hull City Council
  • North Lincolnshire
  • North East Lincolnshire

Police and Crime Commissioners (PCCs) aim to cut crime and deliver an effective and efficient police service within their force area.

To provide stronger and more transparent accountability of the police, PCCs will be elected by the public to hold chief constables and the police force to account; effectively making the police answerable to the communities they serve.

PCCs will ensure community needs are met as effectively as possible, and will improve local relationships through building confidence and restoring trust. They will also work in partnership across a range of agencies at local and national level to ensure there is a unified approach to preventing and reducing crime.

PCCs will not be expected to run the police. The role of the PCC is to be the voice of the people and hold the police to account.

Elections for a PCC take place every four years.
