Police and crime commissioners line up for webchat session
Published at 12:39, Tuesday, 06 November 2012
The Times & Star has organised the online question and answer session to give residents the chance to quiz the four candidates.
Conservative Richard Rhodes, Labour’s Dr Patrick Leonard, Liberal Democrat Pru Jupe and independent candidate Mary Robinson will be on hand to take your questions.
The commissioner will replace the police authority and will be responsible for setting policing priorities, deciding how the policing budget is spent, holding the chief constable to account and consulting with the public.
He or she will receive a salary of £65,000 a year and will answer to a 12-strong police and crime panel.
The commissioner will act as the voice of the people and hold the police to account.
The hour-long webchat will go live at 5.30pm on www.timesandstar.co.uk. You can also submit questions ahead of the webchat by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
