About Your PCC

Lisa Oldroyd, Acting Police & Crime Commissioner for Cleveland

Lisa Oldroyd

Following the resignation of former PCC Barry Coppinger, Lisa Oldroyd was unanimously appointed as the Acting PCC by Cleveland Police and Crime Panel on Tuesday 15 September 2020.

Due to emergency Covid-19 legislation, an election to replace Mr Coppinger cannot take place and national rules state that a temporary replacement must be appointed from within the existing OPCC team.

An election for a new Police and Crime Commissioner is now due to take place in May 2021.

Mrs Oldroyd has over 18 years of experience working in crime and community safety settings, including leading the development, delivery and performance management of community safety policies in local government.

She has worked for the OPCC since 2017, leading on Crime, Offending and Justice matters across Cleveland and Durham, before taking on the role of Assistant Chief Executive in June 2020.

Supported by colleagues within the OPCC, Mrs Oldroyd will provide politically neutral stewardship until the PCC election in May 2021.
