PCC to hold Chief Constable to account at special meeting

Policing in the county will once again come under the spotlight this week as Norfolk’s Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) holds his fourth Police Accountability Forum of 2018.

PCC Lorne Green will quiz Chief Constable Simon Bailey on progress against the county’s Police and Crime Plan at the meeting at Norfolk’s Police Headquarters in Wymondham tomorrow (Tues 31 July).

Items on the agenda will include:

  • How the Constabulary is achieving value for money for taxpayers.
  • What the Constabulary is doing to support deliver a modern and innovative force.
  • How the Force is increasing visible policing.

The PCC will also be questioning the Chief Constable about what the Force is doing to tackle and reduce crime in Norfolk, including in areas of policing such as rural crime and traditionally under-reported or ‘hidden’ crimes.

Last year, the Police Accountability Forum meetings were combined with district-based public Q&A sessions. For 2018, those two elements have been split and held as separate events.

“I’m committed to ensuring my work as PCC is open and transparent,” said Lorne. ”I’d welcome anyone who would like to know more about the work of their police force to come along to the Police Accountability Forum in Wymondham to observe.

“And if you have a question for me or the Chief Constable, or a concern or observation you would like to share, please make a note of the next Q&A date. We’ll be continuing to work our way around the county over the coming months.”

The meeting will take place between 2 and 4pm in the Filby Room, Norfolk Police HQ, Wymondham, NR18 0WW.

The next public Q&A will be held in the North Norfolk area on Tuesday 25 September 2018. Further details will be announced in due course.
