Today was the vote in the Sheffield PCC election. Turnout in the highly publicised vote was under 15% with only 20% of this vote coming on the actual day. Polling stations were empty most of the day with stations reporting less than 100 people all over the region. In 2012 when first launched most areas only had 10-20% turnout. There is also the issue of the police and politics becoming too close when they should be kept separate.

So should PCC's be abolished?

If you watch the news there's shouts of 'more devolved powers' and 'we the people aren't listened to.'

This is what happens.

I'm starting to think that people who are leading these initiatives are just doing it to create beurocratic jobs for themselves.

Waste of time and money! The Kent one doesn't even know what she's supposed to be doing! No one votes in the elections either...

Yes, beyond a regional police body directing funds to knife crime over drugs for example i don't see any reason for local control of justice and policing powers.

Indeed i'm not actually sure i bothered to vote which is rare for me.

It's a new thing, it got such low votes, like every Scottish parliament election. It's not engrained enough in the public psyche.

Abolish the PCCs. Police committees actually seemed to do a better job.
