Medway Elects
Kent Police and Crime Commissioner

Police and Crime Commissioners (PCCs) were established in 2012, covering each of the England and Wales Police Forces (except those where management is devolved to an elected mayor). PCCs are responsible for developing a "police and crime plan", setting out their objectives for policing and allocation of resources, and must hold the Force's Chief Constable to account for its delivery. They must produce an annual report to the public, detailing the progress in policing in their area.

PCCs are also responsible for the "police fund" for their area, receiving money from the Home Office, deciding the local precept on Council Tax to top up this fund and setting the budget for their policing area.

Medway falls within the area of Kent Police.

The Local Government Boundary Commission for England are currently reviewing Medway's ward boundaries. The new boundaries are expected to increase the number of councillors in Medway from 55 to 59 and will be introduced for the next elections to Medway council in 2023. They have launched a public consultation for residents and organisations in Medway to help them decide where the boundaries should be drawn. The consultation is open until 2 March 2020, with draft recommendations due to be published in June 2020. You can have your say on the new boundaries by clicking the button below, which will take you to the Local Government Boundary Commission for England's consultation.
