Contact your police and crime commissioner (PCC) to make a suggestion or a complaint on 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

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
Complain to the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) if you think your PCC has broken the law.
To complain about anything else, contact your local council and ask for details of their representative on the local police and crime panel.
