It's been called the most radical reform of policing for fifty years.
In November, the public across England and Wales will get to vote for who they want to be their first Police and Crime Commissioner.
The new role will aim to make local forces more accountable.
Blair Gibbs of think tank Policy Exchange is amongst the advocates for the newly created post.
