£3 million has been set aside for raising awareness about the Police and Crime Commissioner elections in November.

The Home Office will not spend anything on the methods of election for PCCs. The Police Reform and Social Responsibility Act gives the Electoral Commission a statutory duty to raise awareness of these elections, including how to vote in them, as it currently does for all UK elections. The Home Office is working closely with the Commission on this but does not fund this activity.
