Hello Mrs. Akesson,

I would indeed want to ask my request to the West Yorkshire Police and thought your authority was the same. Can I ask what is the precise difference between West Yorkshire Police and your authority?

Yours sincerely,

Eva Levy

PCC FOI West Yorks, West Yorkshire Police and Crime Commissioner

Classification: OFFICIAL

Dear Ms Levy,

The Police and Crime Commissioners (PCCs) are elected and stand in 40 force areas across England and Wales. Every force area is represented by a PCC, except Greater Manchester and London, where PCC responsibilities lie with the Mayor.

The role of the PCCs is to be the voice of the people and hold the police to account. They are responsible for the totality of policing.

PCCs aim to cut crime and deliver an effective and efficient police service within their force area.

PCCs have been elected by the public to hold Chief Constables and the force to account, effectively making the police answerable to the communities they serve.

PCCs ensure community needs are met as effectively as possible, and are improving local relationships through building confidence and restoring trust. They work in partnership across a range of agencies at local and national level to ensure there is a unified approach to preventing and reducing crime.

The Police Force have core operational duties which include:

1. protecting life and property
2. preserving order
3. preventing the commission of offences
4. bringing offenders to justice.

The Police also have additional duties that are prescribed under legislation and common law.

The source of information that you are specifically enquiring about is held by the Police Force and not the Commissioner's Office, they are the authority tackling such offences and bring offenders to justice.

If we can be of any further assistance, please don't hesitate to ask.

Yours sincerely,

Felicity Akesson
Information Governance Officer
Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner West Yorkshire
