Nottinghamshire Police and Crime Commissioner Election

The candidates standing for election as Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) for Nottinghamshire have been announced.

The role of the PCC is to be the voice of the people and hold the police to account. PCC's are elected every four years. The role is diverse but is mainly focussed on the following four areas:

  • Setting the priorities for Nottinghamshire Police
  • Responding to the needs of communities
  • Setting the budget for local policing
  • Ensuring that local and national priorities are suitably resourced and monitoring the local performance of the force.

The next Police and Crime Commissioner election will take place on Thursday 6 May (2021). The following people stand nominated for election:

  • Paddy Tipping - Labour and Co-operative Party (current)
  • Caroline Elizabeth Henry - Conservative candidate
  • David Kenneth Watts - Liberal Democrat candidate
