People in Warwickshire will vote for the county's police and crime commissioner on 6 May.

This election was originally meant to take place in May 2020 but postponed due to the pandemic.

The last time elections were held, in 2017, the force was in a "strategic alliance" with neighbouring West Mercia Police, but they have since decided to split.

These are the candidates who have so far said they intend to stand in the election (listed alphabetically):

Louis Adam, Liberal Democrats
