It is less than four months since Police and Crime Commissioners were elected; Police and Crime Panels established and Police Authorities abolished. How are the new roles and structures working?
Vera Baird QC, Police and Crime Commissioner for Northumbria and Councillor Joe Orson, Chair of the Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland Police and Crime Panel will be giving an account of their experiences so far; the issues they face and plans for the coming year.
The seminar will also provide delegates with expert perspectives on developing good practice in scrutiny of Police and Crime Commissioners and wider community engagement within the new democratic structures.
There will be plenty of opportunity to question and discuss the issues with the speakers and for participants to share their perspectives and experiences of how the new arrangements are working in their areas.
Copies of presentations and notes from the seminar will be circulated to all participants following the event.
