Police and Crime Commissioner elections for Suffolk


The next election for Police and Crime Commissioners (PCCs) is due to be held onĀ Thursday, 6 May 2021. This election was rescheduled from Thursday, 7 May 2020 as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic.

This will be the third time these elections have been staged across England and Wales. It gives the public their chance to decide who should be accountable in their area for how crime is tackled locally.

Suffolk's Police and Crime Commissioner, Tim Passmore, has been in post since November 2012.

Stephen Baker, the Chief Executive of East Suffolk Council, has once again been appointed as the Suffolk Police Area Returning Officer (PARO) for the PCC election on 6 May 2021.

He will have overall responsibility for coordinating and running the election across the whole of the county, although local returning officers at district / borough level will have responsibility for overseeing arrangements in their areas.
