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 here.
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.
