Humberside Police and Crime Panel

What is the Police and Crime Panel?

The Police and Crime Panel (PCP)  for the Humberside Police area has been set up to scrutinise, support and challenge the Police and Crime Commissioner.

Following the Police and Crime Commissioner election on 5 May 2016, Keith Hunter was elected as the commissioner for the Humberside region. Full details of the results for the Humberside Police area can be found below.

The Police and Crime Panel has a number of powers and responsibilities, including:

  • Scrutinising the actions and decisions of the Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC)
  • Reviewing the draft Police and Crime Plan to ensure local priorities have been considered
  • Scrutinising and commenting upon the Annual Report of the PCC
  • Reviewing and reporting on the precept proposed by the PCC. The panel has the right to veto the Commissioner's proposed policing precept (the money collected from Council Tax for policing)
  • Holding confirmation hearings for the proposed appointment of a Chief Constable and senior support staff

For details about the role of the PCC and to access other crime related information visit the Home Office website.

For further details about Keith Hunter and the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner for Humberside please visit the Police and Crime Commissioner's Office website.

When to make a complaint

If you have a complaint about the Police and Crime Commissioner or the Deputy Police and Crime Commissioner, you can make the complaint to us, the Police and Crime Panel.

Please do not make a complaint simply because you disagree with something the Commissioner or the Deputy has done, there must be some alleged fault, for example, you may think that they have not followed the proper procedure for taking a decision.

Please be aware that any complaints made alleging criminal conduct on behalf of the Commissioner or the Deputy will be referred to the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) for investigation.

Where the complaint does not fall within the responsibility of the Police and Crime Panel, for example, if it relates to an issue of policing, the panel will contact you to confirm how the matter will be handled.

How to make a complaint

Members of the public who wish to submit a complaint may send the complaint to the panel on policeandcrimepanel@northlincs.gov.uk or alternatively to the Head of Democratic Services at North Lincolnshire Council, Civic Centre, Ashby Road, Scunthorpe, DN16 1AB.

The complete complaints procedure and summary documents are available to download:

A period of up to thirty minutes is made available for questions or statements submitted by members of the public who either live or work within the geographical area covered by the Police and Crime Panel for Humberside (subject to number of individuals present, up to five minutes per speaker at the discretion of the Chairman).

Questions or statements should be addressed to the Chairman of the Police and Crime Panel (PCP).

The PCP is a scrutiny body and exists to scrutinise the Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) and therefore questions or statements must relate to the role and function of the PCP.

The PCP has the following main responsibilities:

  • The ability to review the PCC’s Police and Crime Plan and Annual Reports
  • Consider the PCC proposed appointment of a Chief Constable, with this panel having the power of veto over the appointment
  • Consider the proposed Council Tax precept to be set by the PCC with the panel having power of veto
  • Review certain senior appointments by the PCC
  • Scrutinise and support the activities of the PCC for Humberside. The police force area includes all four unitary council’s (Hull City Council, East Riding of Yorkshire Council, North Lincolnshire Council and North East Lincolnshire Council)
  • To consider complaints against the PCC of a non criminal nature

The Police and Crime Commissioner for Humberside has agreed that he too will be available to answer questions raised from members of the public at panel meetings.

The deadline for submission of questions is five clear working days before the meeting in order that an appropriate answer to the question can be given.

Questions should be submitted by email to:

policeandcrimepanel@northlincs.gov.uk for the attention of the Head of Democratic Services, or written questions can be sent via post to the Head of Democratic Services. Civic Centre, Ashby Road, Scunthorpe, DN16 1AB.

A list of Speakers and Questions will be drawn up in order of receipt and copies of all questions and statements will be circulated to all panel members and will be made available to the public attending the meeting.

If assistance is required in presenting the question (for example, language interpreter) it will be necessary to give at least one week’s notice.

Each member of the public called will have up to five minutes to speak.

The question/statement must be exactly as previously submitted.

Each member of the public asking a question must give his or her name.

Each question shall be put and answered without discussion.

Nobody may submit more than one question or make more than one statement at the same meeting, but a supplementary question may be asked for clarification at the discretion of the Chairman.  There should only be one speaker for each subject.

If after the expiration of the thirty minutes, questions remain unanswered, steps will be taken to forward a written response.

If a member of the public is unable to attend the meeting to ask a question, a written response will be sent.

Questions from Police employees and/or on their employment matters will not be permitted, as there are other avenues to progress these matters.

The Secretary may redirect a question or statement if:

  • He/she feels that insufficient detail has been provided to enable a proper response to be provided.
  • It is not about a matter for which the PCP or PCC has a responsibility
  • It is defamatory, frivolous, offensive or repetitive
  • It is substantially the same as a question which has been put at a meeting of the PCP in the past six months
  • It requires the disclosure of confidential or exempt information

A record will be kept of each question and associated minute in a book open to public inspection (subject to confidential issues). Rejected questions and statements will include reasons for rejection.

Public speaking will only be allowed/administered on a quarterly basis, with a meeting taking place in each unitary council area.
