We now know who will be standing in the Police and Crime Commissioner election for the Thames Valley on 5 May.

You can find a list of the candidates on the Thames Valley PCC election website. The agents representing each candidate are available to view at the same time. 


The Police and Crime Commissioner is responsible for making sure Thames Valley Police is an efficient and effective force. For more information on the candidates, and to find out more about the role of the Police and Crime Commissioner, visit the PCC website. A statement from all of the candidates will be available on that website soon – you can order a printed copy now by calling 0800 107 0708.


There is still time to register to vote at this election – the deadline is 18 April.  To register to vote, residents should visit the voter registration website.


David Buckle, Police Area Returning Officer for the Thames Valley, said: "Now the candidates have been announced, I’d urge everybody to have a look at the Choose My PCC website, so they know more about all of the candidates standing. This is also a good opportunity for a reminder – if you haven’t registered to vote yet, you need to do so by 18 April."


There’s lots of information about registering to vote, applying to vote by post, and applying for somebody to vote on your behalf on the about my vote website.
