What is the Police and Crime Commissioner?
The Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) will be an elected individual overseeing policing in South Yorkshire. The PCC will represent the public in a role to reduce crime and reoffending and deliver an effective and efficient police service within their area.
The role of the PCC was introduced under the Police Reform and Social Responsibility Act 2011 which was passed in September 2011. The act requires a PCC in each of the 41 police force areas in England and Wales (outside London).
