Norfolk PCC office recognised for excellenceFor the third year running, the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner for Norfolk (OPCCN) has received a prestigious national award for openness and transparency.
Based in Wymondham, the OPCCN supports and promotes the work of the PCC for Norfolk and was one of 25 Police and Crime Commissioners’ (PCC) offices to receive the 2017/18 Quality Mark for Transparency from CoPaCC – a national organisation which monitors police governance.
Awarding the Quality Marks at an event in London, CoPaCC Chief Executive Bernard Rix said: “These OPCCs have all demonstrated that they are transparent in what they do, meeting relevant legal requirements. They present key information in an accessible format on their websites and I congratulate them all on their good work.
"I look forward to what I trust will be continued excellent work by each and every one of them in this area.”
Commenting on the Norfolk PCC team achieving the quality mark, PCC Lorne Green said: “I’d like to add my congratulations to those of CoPaCC. This Quality Mark recognises the OPCCN team for its continued good practice in making PCC business open, transparent and accessible to everyone - whether they simply want to know more about what PCCs do, have a question or challenge to make, or are involved in formal inspection, audit or scrutiny processes.
“The team at OPCCN is a top performing one, which serves Norfolk’s communities well and is highly-regarded both locally and nationally for what it does. While very welcome, receipt of this quality mark simply confirms what I’ve known for a while now and I’m proud to work with them.”
