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.
You can also find information on the PCC Election page on this website.
Have your say and make your voice heard. Vote for your police and crime commissioner on 5th May.
