Fourth national transparency award for Norfolk PCC officeFor the fourth year running, the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner for Norfolk (OPCCN) has received a prestigious national award for openness and transparency.
The OPCCN is one of 27 PCC offices to have been awarded the Open and Transparent Quality Mark 2019 by CoPaCC – a national organisation which monitors police governance.
Based in Wymondham, the OPCCN supports and promotes the work of the PCC for Norfolk. The Quality Mark, which will be officially presented to the OPCCN at an awards event in the summer, recognises the PCC offices which meet their statutory requirements in making information available to the public.
On announcing the awards, CoPaCC Chief Executive Bernard Rix said: “These OPCCs have all demonstrated that they are transparent in what they do, meeting relevant legal requirements and presenting key information in an accessible format on their websites.
“I congratulate them all on their award-winning work, and I look forward to what I trust will be continued excellent work by each and every one of them in this area.”
Adding his congratulations to those of CoPaCC, Norfolk PCC Lorne Green said: “This Quality Mark recognises the OPCCN team for its continued good practice in making PCC business open, transparent and accessible to everyone.
“The team at OPCCN is a top performing one, and one with which I am proud to work. The men, women and children of our county are well served.”
