The law requires all Police and Crime Commissioners to produce a Police and Crime Plan within the first financial year after they are elected. A Police and Crime Plan can last for a PCC’s term of office or be renewed periodically.

The Police and Crime Plan must include:

  • The PCC’s police and crime objectives
  • The priorities for the Chief Constable
  • The resources the PCC will make available to the Chief Constable to provide policing
  • How the Chief Constable will report to the PCC about policing
  • How the Chief Constable’s performance will be measured
  • Information about any crime and disorder reduction grants to be made by the PCC, any conditions made.
