PCC to unite with colleagues


Remote meeting
28th May 2020 09:30 - 12:00

Merseyside's Police Commissioner will meet virtually with her PCC colleagues from around the country today.

Jane Kennedy is attending a General Meeting of the Association of Police and Crime Commissioner's (APCC), the national body which represents Police and Crime Commissioners (PCCs).

Due to the current restrictions around people's movements in light of the Coronavirus pandemic, this meeting is being held virtually, allowing PCCs to join together and discuss critical issues remotely from their areas across England and Wales.

The meeting will be led by APCC Chair Katy Bourne, with a range of updates and presentations from PCCs on key issues including finance and the cost of Covid-19 to policing, supporting victims and the impact on the criminal justice system.

The key note speech will be given by the Minister for Safeguarding, Victoria Atkins MP, and there will also be updates from the Home Office on Operation Uplift, the national campaign which aims to see 20,000 additional police officers recruited across England and Wales, and the plan for recovering after the Covid-19 crisis.
