These candidate briefings cover how police and crime commissioners (PCCs) should work with others in their force area.
The briefings above provide candidates with the information to help them understand partnership structures, and how they will need to work in partnership with other local leaders in community safety and criminal justice.
The Criminal Justice Service briefings need to be read in conjunction with the following principles:
- the operational independence and impartiality of the judiciary and prosecutors must be preserved
- each individual criminal justice system body remains responsible for setting its own priorities in line with its statutory obligations
- each criminal justice body’s accounting officer remains ultimately accountable for use of that body’s budget to the National Audit Office and the Public Accounts Committee and to Parliament, whether via the Secretary of State for Justice or the Attorney General
