As your Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC), Stephen Bett is committed to being open and transparent about his work.
There are legal requirements to publish specific information, with which Stephen must comply. There is also a lot of information produced by, and for, your PCC which falls outside of these legal requirements but which may be of interest to you.
The Transparency Index seeks to signpost where you can find the information you might be looking for.
If you are looking for something specific and, having looked at the Transparency Index, still can’t find it, get in touch and we will see if we can help.
Contact details for the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner for Norfolk can be found on the Contact Us page.
Assessing the impact of our work
There are a number of ways in which organisations such as ours can assess the impact of what we do on individuals or the community as a whole.
Equality Impact Assessments
An Equality Impact Assessment is an assessment that public authorities carry out prior to implementing a policy or working practice, with a view to ascertaining its potential impact on equality. Policy and practices in this context need to be understood to embrace the full range of functions, activities and decisions for which an organisation is responsible – essentially everything it does. They are not required by law, although are a way of facilitating and evidencing compliance with the Public Sector Equality Duty contained in section 149 of the Equality Act 2010, which Duty requires public authorities to have due regard to a number of equality considerations when exercising their functions. These assessments will also assist with the analysis of our policies and practices to make sure they do not discriminate or disadvantage people as well as improving and promoting equality.
Privacy Impact Assessments
A Privacy Impact Assessment enables an organisation to analyse how a particular project or system will affect the privacy of the individuals involved. The purpose of the Privacy Impact Assessment is to ensure that privacy risks are minimised while allowing the aims of a project to be met whenever possible. Conducting a Privacy Impact Assessment is not required by law, however carrying one out effectively should benefit people affected by a project, and the organisation carrying out the project by helping organisations to comply with their Data Protection Act obligations.
Information relating to Equality Impact Assessments and Privacy Impact Assessments undertaken will be published here when available.
