PCC Elections 2016

On 5th May, people across England and Wales will take to the polls to elect the Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) for their local police force area.

PCCs are elected to hold the police to account for delivering the kind of policing you want to see. Their aim is to cut crime and to ensure your police force is effective. They are there to ensure the policing needs of the public are met as effectively as possible and to oversee how crime is tackled by the police.

Please note that during the formal pre-election period there will be only be limited updates to the Merseyside PCC website.

You can find information about the candidates standing for election in your police force area at ChoosemyPCC website.

Deputy to help launch Wirral Neighbourhood Justice Scheme

29th July 2014 14:01 - 16:00

The Deputy Police Commissioner will be the keynote speaker at the launch of the Wirral Neighbourhood Justice Scheme.

This new initiative is designed to help tackle anti-social and lower level crime in Wirral by empowering communities to resolve conflicts. This will involved the use of locally-recruited community volunteers using restorative justice to bring together those who have caused harm with those affected to repair the damage done.

This approach is also designed to reduce re-offending, stop problems from escalating and reduce the harm caused to victims.

Cllr Ann O'Byrne, who as Deputy as a specific remit for victims, will be speaking alongside the Chief Executive of Restorative Solutions Gary Stephenson, Restorative Justice Housing expert John Stevenson and offender mentor Peter Woolf.

Volunteers will also be on hand to talk about their experiences.
