Police Area Returning Officer (PARO)

The overall responsibility for the conduct of an election sits with the designated PARO, as set out in the Police Reform and Social Responsibility Act (2011).

They are responsible for giving notice of the election, managing the nomination process, overseeing the conduct of the poll, as well as the calculation and declaration of the result.

The Minister of State of the Cabinet Office formally designated West Berkshire Council to provide the appropriate PARO to conduct the 2024 PCC election for the police area of Thames Valley. The PARO for the Thames Valley Police area was Nigel Lynn.
