One-to-one with the Chief Constable

Remote meeting
PCC Jane Kennedy talking to Chief Constable Andy Cooke

The Police Commissioner has regular private meetings with the Chief Constable to ensure there is an open exchange of information and help them both to maintain an effective working relationship.

These meetings are usually held at either Force Headquarters or at the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner. but due to the current restrictions on gatherings due to Covid-19 these meetings are now often held virtually.

These meetings give Jane and the Chief Constable, Andy Cooke,  the opportunity to discuss a wide variety of subjects relating to routine business.

This includes:

  • matters of immediate concern;
  • trends in performance and incidence of crime that may impact on priorities included in the Police and Crime Plan;
  • strategic proposals of the Commissioner/Chief Constable not considered in other forums;
  • matters raised by the Police and Crime Panel;
  • strategic finance;
  • personnel matters;
  • strategic policing initiatives;
  • complaints and misconduct issues.

A summary of all their meetings with actions is published as a register. Please find a record of all one-to-one registers.
