Police and Crime Commissioner

On 15 November 2012 voters across Sussex chose the first Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) for Sussex. The PCC took office on 22 November. The PCC has a democratic mandate to hold Sussex Police to account and tackle crime across East and West Sussex and Brighton & Hove. The PCC will work with, and commission services from, a wide range of partners to respond to the priorities of local people.

The PCC has responsibility for:

Appointing the Chief Constable and holding them to account for the running of their force

Setting out a 5 year Police and Crime Plan (in consultation with the Chief Constable determining local policing priorities

Setting the annual local precept and annual force budget

Making community safety grants to make a difference to local communities.

Further information can be found on the Sussex PCC website.

The PCC will be held to account by a Police and Crime Panel (PCP), composed of 17 locally elected councillors and two independent members. Details of its role to scrutinise the PCC, to promote openness and to support the PCC in the effective exercise of their functions can be found on the West Sussex County Council.
