2021 PCC Election


Police and Crime Commissioners (PCCs) are elected every four years. The last election was held in May 2016 and the next election (originally scheduled for 7 May 2020) will now be on 6 May 2021.

To read about the role and responsibilities of a PCC please visit the Home Office website. The Association of Police & Crime Commissioners (APCC) has also produced a short video which explains how the public can have their say about who their local PCC is.



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.
