A key decision is one which will have a significant or ongoing impact to communities in Merseyside. It may also be financially significant, in terms of spending or savings for the service or function concerned.

Many decisions taken by the Police and Crime Commissioner arise from her statutory duties and she is required to record and publish those decisions.

In order that you can understand why the Commissioner has made the decisions which she has, the Commissioner has approved a Policy Statement on The Making and Publication of Decisions of Significant Public Interest.

This policy statement establishes the approach and principles for decision-making by the Commissioner and outlines the decision-making process, together with providing information on how key decisions will be determined, recorded and publicised.
