There are six main mechanisms by which the Commissioner scrutinises the actions and progress of Merseyside Police.
All of these processes result in the publication of minutes or reports on this website, which are available for you to review and consider.
- Public Scrutiny Meetings (previously known as Force Inspection);
- the Commissioner's high-level one-to-one meetings with the Chief Constable;
- Merseyside Strategic Policing and Partnerships Board (MSPPB)
- Key decisions;
- Audit, encompassing Internal and External Audit and the Shared Audit Committee;
- the Business Change programme;
In addition to this, these published documents are then subject to further scrutiny by elected or appointed representatives of the public.
In particular, the Police and Crime Panel for Merseyside will scrutinise and review these decisions and reports, and can make recommendations to the Commissioner as they see fit.
