Holding the Chief Constable to Account

The Police and Crime Commissioners (PCC) has statutory responsibilities for holding the Chief Constable to account.

In particular, the PCC will be required to hold the Chief Constable to account for:

  • Performance against the priorities set out in the Police and Crime Plan
  • The Strategic Policing Requirement (SPR) – which ensures there is sufficient capability regionally and nationally to respond to serious and cross-boundary criminality
  • The force having regard to Codes of Practice
  • The effectiveness and efficiency of the force
  • Their engagement with local people
  • Equality and diversity
  • And safeguarding of children and promotion of child welfare
