Scrutiny

The PCVC holds the Chief Constable to account and where he formally documents any key decisions relating to the police service.

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.
