What is the role of the Police Crime Commissioner (PCC)?

The role of Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) was introduced across England and Wales in 2012. The PCC oversees how crime is tackled in the county and holds the police force to account on Surrey residents’ behalf to make sure they are providing an effective and efficient service. The Commissioner also works with the Chief Constable to set the overall direction for the force through the Police and Crime Plan, and proposes the amount of Council Tax that will go towards policing from Surrey residents.
