PURDAH RESTRICTIONS ON POLICE AND CRIME COMMISSIONERS
Purdah restrictions on Police and Crime Commissioners during the General Election

On Monday 24 April 2017, the Association of Police and Crime Commissioners issued guidance in respect of the restrictions that should be followed during the period known as Purdah (the pre-election period).

A full copy of that guidance is attached here.

In order to comply with the restrictions, the Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) for Bedfordshire has decided to minimise her involvement in any open public meeting involving politicians, either incumbents or candidates. The PCC has also decided to limit any media activity, either in person or on social media, during the purdah period.

The PCC will hold an open day, alongside the Force, for all prospective Parliamentary candidates to explain the work of Bedfordshire Police and the OPCC, and to answer any questions that candidates may have. Details on the event will be published in due course.
