The very first Police and Crime Commissioner elections took place across England and Wales (excluding London) on 15 November 2012. We ran a public awareness campaign across TV, radio and press to ensure all eligible electors were aware that the elections were happening and to direct them to the information booklet we produced. You can see and listen to some of our adverts below.

From 22 October 2012, we sent a public information booklet to all households in England and Wales (excluding London). You can download the booklet below.
We also created an online video to show people how to mark their ballot papers.
