2020 PCC Election

The Police and Crime Commissioner elections, set to be held on 7 May 2020, have been postponed for a year because of the coronavirus, the UK Government has announced.

PCC elections take place every four years, however recent developments in the UK with the spread of coronavirus mean that PCC elections in England and Wales have been postponed until May 2021.

Lincolnshire’s PCC, Marc Jones will now remain in office for an extra year and serve a five-year term.

Local and mayoral elections in England have also been postponed.


Lincolnshire will soon be having an election for the Police and Crime Commissioner role within the OPCC.

What is the PCC?

The Police and Crime Commissioner's role is to represent the people of Lincolnshire on policing matters and hold the police to account. PCCs aim to cut crime and deliver an effective and efficient police service within their force area. The PCC is unique in that it is a role elected by the public which makes it unlike any other role in the policing environment. For more information on the role of the PCC, please see the About the role of a PCC section on our website.

The APCC have produced a detailed briefing document about PCC's which can be found by clicking Here.
