THE first ever elections for the newly-created positions of Police and Crime Commissioners are now less than four weeks away.

Candidates have until Friday to declare their intention to stand for the position, with elections taking place on 15th November.

The role of Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) replaces that of the existing Police Authority and means that one person will be responsible for holding the Chief Constable and police force to account on the public’s behalf.
