The next meeting of the Police and Crime Commissioner’s Strategic Governance Board will be held at The Council House, Derby, starting at 2.00pm on Monday, 11 November.
These regular monthly meetings see the Commissioner and his team meet, in public, with Chief Officers from Derbyshire Constabulary to consider items including police performance, finance and resources and in-depth reports on different aspects of police work.
Over the last year these meetings have been held at different venues around the County to give members of the public the opportunity to attend meetings where key decisions are taken. In the interests of openness, both the Commissioner and the Chief Constable are keen to see members of the public take this opportunity to obtain a closer look at local policing delivery.
In addition, members of the public can ask questions of those responsible for Derbyshire policing. The first 30 minutes is set aside to give people the opportunity to ask questions on policing in the county of either the Commissioner or the Chief Constable. There is no need for people to give notice of questions in advance but anyone wanting to take part must be present for the start of the meeting at 2pm.
Commissioner Charles urged people to attend, saying: “This regular meeting gives member of our communities and their representatives the chance to ask their questions and receive a response from either the force or my own team.
“We’ve always said that we wanted to improve accessibility to the police and this is a big step in that direction.
“They can also witness the robust scrutiny given to Chief Constable in terms of performance and management of the force.”
Special reports on the agenda include an in-depth look at the work to tackle drug related crime, alongside how the force is addressing acquisitive crime such as burglary, vehicle crime and robbery and managing repeat offenders.
The meeting will take place in the Sir Henry Royce Room, The Council House, Corporation Street, Derby DE1 2FS.
