Police and Crime Panel

- Virtual meeting

Merseyside's Police Commissioner is today meeting with the Police and Crime Panel, the body which scrutinises her work.

Jane Kennedy meets six times a year with the Panel. They support the Commissioner in her work, while holding responsibility for overseeing her work and making sure she is holding the Chief Constable to account.

This is the sixth meeting of the 2020/21 financial year, and the final time the Police Commissioner will meet with the Panel before her term of office comes to an end in May.

On the agenda for discussion are the PCC's priority of working in partnership to improve road safety, her Corporate Governance Framework and her complaints monitoring process. She will also provide an update on her estates strategy to modernise and refurbish Merseyside Police's stations and buildings.

The PCC will also present her draft Annual Report for 2020/21 reflecting on her last year in office.

Police and Crime Panel meetings are always open to the public. However, due to the current government restrictions on meetings in light of the coronavirus pandemic, this meeting will be held virtually.
