Monitoring the Police and Crime Plan

Robust monitoring and accountability


The Police, Crime and Victims' Commissioner (PCVC) holds monthly meetings with the Chief Constable and his Executive Team so that he can monitor police performance and ask the questions needed to evaluate performance against the objectives set in his Police and Crime Plan.

It is at these meetings where the PCVC holds the Chief Constable to account and where he formally documents any key decisions relating to the police service. At the meetings the PCVC and Chief Constable discuss police performance, the budget and financial information to assess whether an efficient and effective service is being delivered. Other discussions are held around current issues, emerging threats and areas of concern and how they can work together to tackle them.

The Accountability Framework


The PCVC has developed a robust accountability framework to monitor the performance of Durham Constabulary and to enable scrutiny of the key areas of focus as set out in his Police and Crime Plan. The diagram on the link below shows the PCVC's relationship with the Chief Constable, how the PCVC is ultimately responsible to the public, and the additional scrutiny mechanisms which are in place.
