Nigel Lynn, Police Area Returning Officer (PARO), said: “This election is your opportunity to influence how your police service works. The Police and Crime Commissioner’s job is to make sure that crime in our area is tackled effectively and according to our local priorities. They’re elected by you, to be your voice and to hold the police force to account.

“The deadline to register to vote is almost here, so please take time to find out more about the PCC candidates so that you can have your say in who takes on this important role.”

Anyone registered to vote will be eligible to have their say in the PCC election on Thursday 2 May.
