On the 16 November 2012, John Dwyer was elected as the first Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) for Cheshire and is responsible for holding the Chief Constable to account on behalf of the people of Cheshire.
I remember at the time that there appeared to be little easily accessible information about the candidates and generally across the country the turn out on polling day was very low. A year on and I have found there is a lot going on that I was unaware of.

So what does he do on our behalf?

The PCC has a website that gives a lot of information about the role.
First and foremost the PCC will maintain an effective and efficient police service.

Other duties include:

  • Appoint and, if necessary, dismiss the Chief Constable;
  • Set policing priorities and produce an Annual Plan;
  • Set the annual police budget and council tax precept;
  • Publish an annual report and accounts;
  • Consult and involve the public.

In conjunction with the Chief Constable he has produced an Update

Young people & the police

Youth Ambassador Dominic Rogers started work on Monday, July 15.
So far, Dominic has met with a number of youth charities and organisations to understand the work they do in the community. He has also been raising awareness with young people about the importance of staying safe on the internet.
The role of Youth Ambassador involves working alongside young people to prevent them from becoming victims of crime, working with young offenders to reduce re-offending, and assisting the Commissioner with the development of the Police & Crime Plan to ensure young people are represented.
Dominic Rogers would like to find out the views from young people about crime in their area and what they think of the police.

If you give your feedback before the 31 October 2013, you will be entered into a prize draw.

The lucky winner will win an iPad 2 (Wi-fi 16GB) that has been kindly donated by the Brian Kennedy Trust.
