Policing under the spotlight at PCC accountability meeting next week
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 19 November.
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
- Details of progress in implementing the Norfolk 2020 policing model one year on from the Chief Constable’s announcement in October 2017
- What the Constabulary is doing to support victims of crime and reduce vulnerability, including an update on police involvement in Norfolk’s Multi-Agency Safeguarding Hub and how the force is working to tackle Child Criminal Exploitation
- An update on police complaints.
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 Taverham on 13 November.
“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. Early in the new year we’ll be heading to Norwich 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 1pm and 3pm in the Filby Room, Norfolk Police HQ, Wymondham, NR18 0WW on Monday 19 November 2018.
