Three special information events are being staged in Devon and Cornwall for people to learn more about the police and crime commissioner election in November. The new commissioner will replace the current police authority in setting the strategic agenda for the force although operational policing will remain in the hands of the chief constable. The events are being held at Kingsley Village, near Fraddon in Cornwall on September 24 and the International Conference Centre in Torbay on October 26. Both will run from 9.30am to 4.30pm. A session will also be held on the Isles of Scilly in early October although the date has yet to be confirmed.
