The purpose of this workshop is to take stock of how Police and Crime Commissioners (PCCs) have done in their first 2 years, explore their competing accountabilities and analyse the boundaries of authority in this new framework.

Challenges that PCCs (and policing in general) face, including financial issues will be discussed and WMP PCC Bob Jones will outline his own experiences as a PCC followed by a Q and A session.

The workshop will be in the Law Building, which can be found on the University of Birmingham campus map (R1).
