About the 2021 PCC Elections

Re-scheduled PCC Elections - 6 May 2021

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

To read about the roles 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.


To read more about the election guidance for PCCs, including qualifications for standing as a candidate, please visit the Electoral Commission website.

We now have a dedicated website for information regarding the elections in 2021 as guidance becomes available.  Please click on the below thumbnail to take you to the site.
