Welcome to the Police and Crime Commissioners Treasurers' Society (PACCTS) website

PACCTS represents the Treasurer of each of the 41 Police and Crime Commissioners in England and Wales, as well as the Treasurer to the Mayor's Office for Policing and Crime, and the Chamberlain of the Common Council of the City of London.

Police and Crime Commissioners are elected to ensure police forces are accountable to the public. They are responsible for setting the budget and council tax precept for the force, as well as setting strategic policing priorities, holding the force to account through the Chief Constable and consulting and involving the public.
