Oversight Boards

The Oversight Boards have been set up to help the Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) carry out their role, including overseeing the delivery of the Police and Crime Plan.

The PCC has set up two Boards – the Performance and Accountability Board and the Government and Scrutiny Board – to examine the work, performance, key projects and budget of the police and other partners.

The aim of the Boards is to:

  • Hold the Chief Constable to account for delivery policing that is efficient and effective
  • Enable the PCC and Chief Constable to openly and publicly demonstrate accountability, transparency and value for money over a broad range of police functions, decisions and national publications and inspections
  • Demonstrate progress made against the policing and crime objectives set out in the PCC’s Police and Crime Plan
  • To further support the requirements of the Specified Information Order by enabling the PCC to openly hold the Chief Constable to account in relation to performance against the National Crime and Policing Measures

The Oversight Boards replace the Police and Crime Board. Read Police and Crime Board reports.
