Rupert Matthews officially took up his role as Police and Crime Commissioner for Leicester, Leicestershire & Rutland on Thursday 13 May 2021
What do PCCs do?
PCCs work with the police and other partners to cut crime, give the public a voice at the highest level, and hold forces to account and help restore trust. Your PCC will do this by:
- being directly accountable to the scrutiny of the public
- having the democratic mandate to respond to local people's concerns
- setting local force's policing priorities and force budget
- working with local partners to prevent crime
- holding their Chief Constable to account for the performance of the force
- appointing, and where necessary dismissing, the Chief Constable
