It is important the public can see that their local police service is being run efficiently and effectively and that measures to support victims and prevent and reduce crime are in place. The Commissioner holds the Chief Constable to account in delivering against the priorities of the Police and Crime Plan and also and ensures that the force’s performance reporting mechanisms are meaningful and fit-for-purpose.
As part of improving transparency the PCC must publish some commentary against the National Policing and Crime Measures. You can read all about this here National Policing and Crime Measure reporting
Governance and Performance Board
Following the publication of the new Police and Crime Plan 2021-2025, police performance is scrutinised through the Governance and Performance Board. While the board meets monthly, performance data are scrutinised quarterly and will be published alongside the relevant meeting papers.
Minutes are published following the meetings.
