Electocracy with Accountabilities? England and Wales’ novel public governance model of Police and Crime Commissioners

It is now some two years since the first police and crime commissioners were elected (with one of the smallest turnouts ever) and there are less than twenty months to go before the next set of elections are due, with a general election coming in between. So how has this new governance model being working – of directly elected commissioners overseeing and funding policing and community safety in each force area and holding the chief constable to account on behalf of the local public? Based on a research project involving interviews with a sample of police and crime commissioners, this seminar offers insights on what has been different so far about police governance and what the prospects might be for the future.
