Merseyside's Police Commissioner is responsible for policing and community safety across the whole county.
As Commissioner, Jane Kennedy is in a unique position - she is the only politician elected to represent the whole of Merseyside. Not only that, but she also has a statutory responsibility to monitor the criminal justice system across the entire region.
She serves a population of approximately 1.39 million people, covering an area of 249 square miles which includes 65miles of coastline. That area is divided by Merseyside Police into five Basic Command Units (BCUs). Those BCUs are Knowsley, Liverpool, Sefton, St Helens and Wirral. Each unit has a combination of neighbourhood policing teams, response teams and criminal investigations units.
You can find out more about the Merseyside Police Force area on the Her Majesty's Inspectorate of Constabulary (HMIC) website.
