Re PCC elections In Manchester

Got this via email so sharing... On November 15th Criminals will hope you do nothing. Have your say in the first ever elections for your local police and crime commissioner. On November 15th, 41 new police and crime commissioners will be elected across the country to give you a say when it comes to cutting crime in your area. What will my police and crime commissioner do? Your police and crime commissioner will ensure the police focus on the crimes that matter most to you, whether it's tackling anti-social behaviour, reducing burglaries, domestic violence or cracking down on drug dealing. They'll set the police and community safety budget, deciding where the money is best spent. They'll also hold your police force to account for delivering the kind of policing that you want to see. Your police and crime commissioner will work with local partners such as social landlords, councils, helath, and drugs and alcohol organisations to not only fight crime and anti-social behaviour but to prevent it. They'll also consult with victims of crime, ensuring that those affected by crime have a role in determining what the police should focus on, and how. And by voting in your local police and crime commissioner, you'll have your say on the key decisions that will impact your local area. What do I need to do? Before the election go to to find out who is standing for election in your area. Or if you dont have access to the internet call 0800 1 070708 to order a free booklet. Then it is up to you to decide who your local police and crime commissioner will be. Chris Kippax ____________________________________ Customer and Community Engagement Team Manchester City Council
