Scrutiny is an important governance function within the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner. It is our job to make sure that the Police deliver the best possible service that is effective, efficient, and good value for money to meet the needs of local people.
We will focus on aspects of policing identified as key issues either from consultation with the public or issues identified by HMIC, auditors or the Police and Crime Commissioner.
Scrutiny will take a victim-centred approach where possible and seek to make recommendations intended to bring about improvements in efficiency, effectiveness and value for money to best meet the needs of local communities.
Given the new powers and responsibilities of the Police and Crime Commissioner scrutiny will seek to explore innovative solutions to problems identified or gaps in service provision.
