Public Accountability

On this page you will find information relating to the accountability process within the Durham Police and Crime Commissioners Office.

The OPCC Accountability Framework requires continuous engagement with the Force in order to achieve the key deliverables of the police and crime plan at the lowest level. The Framework shows this lower level as that which occurs in the day to day conversations the opcc staff have with the public, the force and partners.

Only where necessary will these discussions be escalated to appropriate internal, force or partnership groups for further discussion or review. The highest level of accountability is via the executive board held monthly between the PCC and the chief exec; any issues not resolved earlier in the process will be brought to this group as well as updates relating to the police and crime work plan and noted achievements.
