Essex police commissioner: Who will you vote for?
NEXT Thursday is the chance to have your say on the future policing in Uttlesford.
The first police and crime commissioner for Essex will be elected next week – bringing an end to the Police Authority.
The PCC’s role will involve working with the public, police and partners to ensure effective policing as well as contributing to national requirements. The PCC will be responsible for overseeing policing on behalf of more than 1.7 million people in Essex.
The role – which will command a �85,000 salary – will involve working closely with the chief constable to make sure the public’s concerns are heard by the very top of the police chain.
