Abandon the formation and appointment of Police and Crime Commisioners
Responsible department: Home Office


The Government propose to elect and create Police and Crime Commisioners in November 2012.

The cost of this scheme is reported to be ?130m and they will receive a wage of ?120k pa.

We are in a period of recession and this expense cannot be justified.

Police Forces are already accountable to Police Authorites which are formed from a cross section of the communities that they serve, not a politically motivated individual.

A Police Force should not have any political leaning and this system will see political influence in the Police never seen before and can only be a step in the wrong direction.
