Contact your police and crime commissioner (PCC) to make a suggestion or a complaint about how your local area is policed.

PCCs are elected to make sure that local police meet the needs of the community. Contact your local PCC about:

  • how your area is policed
  • the police budget
  • the amount of Council Tax charged for the police
  • the information you get about what the local police are doing

Become a PCC

The next PCC elections will be in 2016. You’ll be able to register as a candidate closer to the election.

Complain about your PCC

To complain about your PCC, contact your local police and crime panel – your local council will provide contact details.

If you think your PCC has broken the law, the panel will refer your case to the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC). You can also contact the IPCC directly.
