What every PCC should know
Posted on: Wednesday 11 Jul 2012
Abie Longstaff, Legal and Policy Analyst at the Police Foundation takes a look at what she thinks are the four things every good PCC should know.
PCCs will have to hit the ground running. After election, in addition to setting the budget and precept within a matter of weeks, they will have to deliver a Policing and Crime Plan by the end of March 2013. Alongside these daunting tasks, they must quickly build effective relationships with the Chief Constable, other partners and the local community. The temptation will be to deal with what is urgent, rather than what is important. But once the urgent is tackled, PCCs will have the chance to focus on the longer-term.
