Police and Crime Commissioner
The role of Derbyshire's Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) is designed to bring communities and the police closer together. It is about holding the police force to account.
The Commissioner is elected as the 'voice of the people' that aims to improve community engagement and deliver a more effective policing service.
Derbyshire's PCC has responsibility for policing throughout the county, which includes the city, and for holding Chief Constable Peter Goodman to account for its performance. The Chief Constable will, however, retain operational independence.
Part and parcel of the PCC's role is working with community safety partnerships, local authorities and the local criminal justice board in their joint efforts to prevent and reduce crime.
