Police and Crime Commissioner, Hardyal Dhindsa, will scrutinise work carried out to increase the diversity of the workforce and increase the use of modern technology at his Strategic Priorities Board meeting on Monday.
The Board will discuss, in depth, the initiatives being used to encourage those from under-represented groups to join the workforce to ensure that the Constabulary is representative of the communities it serves, one of the Commissioner’s priorities.
The Constabulary will also present a report on the increasing use of technology, from Drones and mobile fingerprinting software to analytics and digital assets.
The success of a pilot scheme to provide better support vulnerable people in custody, managed by the Commissioner’s own office, will be discussed including plans for a wider roll-out across the county and beyond.
The meeting, which will takes place at 2pm on Monday 26 November at the Joint Training Centre at Force HQ in Ripley, will also examine the force’s performance in tackling crime and the findings of the Commissioner’s year-long public consultation programme ‘Listening to You’.
The full agenda and reports plus a map of the Joint Training Centre are available on the Commissioner’s website.
The SPA is a new style of police meeting which assesses the force against the key priorities contained in the PCC’s Police and Crime Plan.
Meetings are now held at the earlier time of 2pm to maximise public attendance and include multu-agency presentation and participation when possible.
Meetings always begin with 30 minutes of public questions, and while members of the public are welcome to observe the full meeting, they may not take an active role once the question period has closed.
Questions can be asked in person at the meeting or remotely via Twitter or email. Followers of @DerbysPCC and @DerbysPolice can tweet their questions using the hashtag #AskDerbysPCC or questions can be sent via email to the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner (firstname.lastname@example.org). All questions will be answered either at the meeting or shortly afterwards if the information needed is not at hand.
