Your Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) uses his Police and Crime Plan for Norfolk to set the overall direction for tackling crime and disorder in the county.
Part of that Plan focuses on setting priority policing objectives for the Chief Constable. The current priorities and associated performance measures are:
Your PCC is responsible for holding the Chief Constable to account for the Constabulary’s performance in these priority areas. Regular updates at his bi-monthly meetings with the Chief Constable give Stephen the opportunity to publicly review and question progress being made. The reports and minutes from these meeting are published on this website.
You can track annual performance against the policing objectives in the PCC’s Annual Report.
You can also monitor the progress of your force through the inspection reports of Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabulary (HMIC), which include those from the annual PEEL (Police Effectiveness, Efficiency and Legitimacy) assessment. Comments from Stephen on HMIC reports can be found below:
We are currently working with the Constabulary to develop a performance framework which will provide you with accurate, up-to-date information on how police in your local area are responding to the PCC’s priorities.
While this work is in progress, we will be publishing monthly updates on police performance in your district. The latest updates can be found below:
Here are details of some of the other ways in which you can look at crime data for your local area and assess the performance of your police force.
41 Police and Crime Commissioners (PCCs) were elected across England and Wales on the 15 November 2012. When the elected PCCs took office on the 22 November 2012 they became responsible for a combined budget of £8 billion.
PCCs aim to cut crime and deliver an effective and efficient police service within their force area. Their role is to be the voice of the people and hold the police to account, effectively making them answerable to the communities they serve.
