The Police Commissioner is elected every four years by the people of Merseyside.

In light of the global Coronavirus pandemic, on 13th March 2020 the UK government announced that local elections, including those for Police and Crime Commissioners (PCCs), planned for 7th May 2020 would be postponed for a year.

The election will now be held in May 2021.

To vote in a Police and Crime Commissioner Election, you must be over 18 and registered to vote.

Information on registering to vote can be found on the Electoral Commission’s website.

The Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner has no role in organising the election, or in circulating information about the candidates.

What does your Police and Crime Commissioner do for you graphic

Jane wants your views on policing funding today...

The Police Commissioner has to set the police budget soon.

She wants your views on  if you would be willing to contribute an extra 19p a week in your council tax  to enable the Chief Constable to recruit 160 new police officers next year, as well help balance the budget and protect jobs?

Without the extra funding the Commissioner will have to reduce the budget, the recruitment of new officers can’t
go ahead and the Chief Constable will be required to cut back on the service again.
