A NATIONAL survey found just 11% of people could name the police and crime commissioner for their area, we took to the streets of Ipswich and Felixstowe to find out if anyone knew the name of Suffolk’s PCC – Tim Passmore.

  • So what was the percentage of local people who could name him? It seems a bit stupid to do the research and not give us the results.

  • It looks like 0% judging by the responses above. I wouldn't have known, and I still don't really know what they do. Just another waste of money.
