In a double-first, Derbyshire’s two top policing heads, the Police and Crime Commissioner Alan Charles and Chief Constable Mick Creedon, are holding a Strategic Governance Board (SGB) meeting in Chesterfield on Monday, 15 April – and taking questions from members of the public. Holding the meeting away from Police Headquarters in Ripley heralds the start of Commissioner Alan Charles’s intention to use different venues for such meeting during the year. This is in response to his aim to increase accessibility to more people across the county. “At the same time, I want to give residents the opportunity to ask me and Chief Constable Mick Creedon questions about the governance of policing in Derbyshire, strengthening the openness and transparency of what we do,” Mr Charles said. Mr Creedon commented: “I would really encourage the public to come along to these meetings to see the discussions taking place. It also will give any residents a chance to have their policing questions answered.” The April SGB meeting will be held in Committee Room 1, Town Hall, Rose Hill, Chesterfield, S40 1LP, starting at 2.00pm. A half-hour of question-time will be allocated at the start of this and future SGB meetings, wherever they are held. There is no need to give notice of questions beforehand but anyone wanting to take part must be present by 2pm. If there are few questions requiring less time, the meeting will move on to the main agenda once these have been answered. Latecomers will not then be allowed to put their questions. The Strategic Governance Board involves regular scrutiny of business areas affecting the Force. These include Performance and Finance & Resources, Professional Standards, Criminal Justice, and Community Engagement and Partnership as well as the Commissioner making decisions on expenditure and other key areas affecting policing in Derbyshire. - ends -
