Voters will head to the polls to elect Cambridgeshire's Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) on 6 May.

PCCs are elected as representatives who work to ensure police forces in England and Wales are running effectively.

They replaced police authorities in 2012 and were intended to bring a public voice to policing.

Elections were postponed in 2020 due to coronavirus but look set to go ahead this year.
