The national Association of Police and Crime Commissioners (APCC) has created this short video aimed at informing voters about the roles and responsibilities of PCCs.

About the election

Elections for Police and Crime Commissioners (PCCs) are scheduled to take place across England and Wales on Thursday 7 May 2020.

Votes are due to be counted on Monday 11 May, with the successful candidate in Kent elected to a four-year term of office to start on Thursday 14 May.

The Kent PCC election will be managed by a Returning Officer. This will be a Monitoring Officer from a local district/borough council within Kent, appointed nearer to the election date.

The Office of the Kent Police and Crime Commissioner (OPCC) has no role in organising the election or responsibility for circulating information about the candidates.

However, information which voters may find useful will be posted on this page prior to election day.
