Police and Crime Commisssioner Elections - two weeks to go

It is now two weeks tp the election on Thursday 15th November, when every citizen in England and Wales outside London will have the opportunity to vote for a Police and Crime Commissioner who will set priorities for the local police force.

As mentioned before there is an official website for these elections, http://www.choosemypcc.org.uk/ on which details of all candidates are displayed.

You can find candidate details on this site, and you statements from all four candidates standing in Cumbria can be read here.

I was asked yesterday at the farm auction in Cockermouth where the money for this post is coming from. The answer is that the Police and Crime Commissioners will take over from the existing Police Authorities which will be abolished, will be funded in the same way, and should not be any more expensive to run.
