Police and Crime Commissioner, Durham
Joy Allen is the Police and Crime Commissioner for Durham, Board member of BlueLight Commercial and the Sustainability Programme, and the APCCs Joint Lead for Environment & Sustainability. The portfolio ensures PCCs are at the heart of the decarbonisation agenda and playing their part in achieving the Net Zero ambition. PCCs have a critical role to play in ensuring forces, commissioned services, and offices are employing environmentally friendly and sustainable practices. In Durham, an ambitious project to centralise Durham's custody provision, will not only deliver a state-of-the-art custody suite, but potentially up to £6m in social value, boosting local businesses, jobs, and the economy. The project was the first to utilise BlueLight Commercial's Social Value Toolkit.
