Police and Crime Commissioners (PCCs) were elected last autumn to every force in England and Wales.
Commissioners are responsible for keeping our streets safe and making police forces more accountable to the public.
Our PCCs are:
Durham: Ron Hogg (Labour)
Cleveland: Barry Coppinger (Labour)
Northumbria: Vera Baird (Labour)
North Yorkshire: Julia Mulligan (Conservative)
The role got off to a shaky start due the low turnout at November's election. Since then, PCCs have drawn up long term plans for their forces.
Helen Ford has been investigating the mark our PCCs are making.
