In 2012-13 the first elections of Police and Crime Commissioners (PCCs) will cost £75 million. Election costs will be borne by the Home Office and will not come from police force budgets.

It is not currently possible to estimate the cost of elections in specific areas as we are collating the relevant information and, as is standard practice, will publish this in summer 2012 ahead of the November elections.
