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 tomorrow.

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 Tuesday 14 May.

Items on the agenda will include:

  • An update on the police budget and how it is being used to ensure the Norfolk public receives efficient and effective services.
  • What the Constabulary is doing to support victims of crime and reduce vulnerability, including the force’s response to domestic incidents in the county.
  • Discussion of findings of a recent Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabularies and Fire and Rescue Services (HMICFRS) Inspection into the police response to fraud.

“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 Tuesday to observe.”

The Police Accountability Forum meeting follows a chance for the public to put their own questions to the PCC and Chief Constable at a Q&A event at King’s Lynn Town Hall from 6pm this evening.

The Police Accountability Forum will take place tomorrow (Tuesday 14 May) between 10am and 12 noon in the Filby Room, Norfolk Police HQ, Wymondham, NR18 0WW.
