Police and crime commissioners

Police and crime commissioners are elected by the public to ensure the policing needs of communities are met as effectively as possible and to oversee how crime is tackled in your police force area.

John Dwyer

John Dwyer isn’t a politician. He spent 30 years as a police officer, retiring as Assistant Chief Constable for Cheshire. He has the knowledge, skills and experience to do a first class job for you. The Police and Crime Commissioner looks after a £200 million policing budget for the whole County and is responsible for leading the police service in Cheshire. The PCC holds the Chief Constable to account and ensures that police officers, support staff and equipment are made available to deliver your policing priorities. The Police and Crime Commissioner is also responsible for recruiting the Chief Constable and for setting the level of local tax for policing purposes. This is a serious role and one which requires experience. When John became the first Police and Crime Commissioner for Cheshire, he pushed up the rates of crime detection across Cheshire and doubled the number of Special Constables. He increased the number of police officers as he recognised that you, the public, wanted to see more police officers on your streets. If elected, John would ensure that Cheshire gets its fair share of the 20,000 new officers the Government has promised over the next 3 years. He cares about your safety and will always be accessible to you as your voice in Cheshire police.
