On 5 May 2016 local people went to the polls to elect the Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) for Essex. The successful candidate will be elected for a period of  4 years.

Elections for Police and Crime Commissioners took place across 41 Police Force areas in England (excluding London) and Wales at the same time.

Under the terms of the Police Reform and Social Responsibility Act 2011, the role of the Police and Crime Commissioner is to:

  • secure an efficient and effective police for their area
  • appoint the Chief Constable, hold them to account for running the force, and if necessary dismiss them
  • set the police and crime objectives for their area through a police and crime plan
  • set the force budget and determine the precept to be collected through council tax
  • contribute to the national and international policing capabilities set out by the Home Secretary; and
  • bring together community safety and criminal justice partners, to make sure local priorities are joined up
