On 15 November 2012, the first Police and Crime Commissioners were elected in England and Wales, bringing to an end the structures of Police Authorities and establishing new lines of accountability to which other public bodies will need to adjust.

This event will: examine the development of the new roles and the rollout of the new responsibilities, including how Police and Crime Plans are drawn up look at how PCCs will identify local priorities for policing and criminal justice and how services will be commissioned to address these help you plan by providing a platform to discuss ways you can engage with your local PCCs
