As Part of the Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) Review evidence in relation to the voting mechanism for PCCs was gathered to inform the recommendations announced by the Home Secretary in March 2021.

This analysis was produced as internal analysis for the purposes of policy development. Given the Review was an internal Review, reporting directly to the Home Secretary, there are no plans to publish the evidence gathered.
