The Northamptonshire Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner (NPFCC) is the elected official charged with overseeing Northamptonshire Police and the Northamptonshire Fire and Rescue Service and ensuring both, the police and the fire service are operating efficiently and effectively within the county of Northamptonshire.
As a result of the Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner for Northamptonshire (Fire and Rescue Authority) Order 2018 and as of 01 January 2019, the governance of Northamptonshire Fire and Rescue Service is the responsibility of the NPFCC. Prior to this change, it was the responsibility of 57 council members within the Northamptonshire County Council.
