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.
