PCC to put spotlight on policing at accountability meeting with Chief Constable

Policing in the county will once again come under the spotlight as Norfolk’s Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) holds his regular Police Accountability Forum with the Chief Constable next week.

PCC Lorne Green will quiz Chief Constable Simon Bailey on progress against the county’s Police and Crime Plan at the meeting at Norfolk Police HQ on Monday 1 October.

Items on the agenda will include:
  • An update on the police budget and how it is being used, including progress in implementing the Norfolk 2020 policing model announced by the Chief Constable in October 2017.
  • What the Constabulary is doing to support rural communities and tackle the crimes affecting Norfolk’s rural areas
  • How the Force is working to improve road safety in the county.
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, with the most recent Q&A event taking place in Cromer on 25 September.

“The Police Accountability Forum is one of the mechanisms through which I hold the Chief Constable to account”, said Lorne. I’m committed to ensuring my work as PCC is open and transparent, and I’d welcome anyone who would like to know more about the work of their police force to come along to the meeting in Wymondham on Monday to observe.

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

The Police Accountability Forum will take place between 2pm and 4pm in the Filby Room, Norfolk Police HQ, Wymondham, NR18 0WW on Monday 1 October 2018. The agenda and reports for this meeting are available here.

The next public Q&A will be held in the Broadland area on Tuesday 13 November 2018. Further details will be announced in due course
