Merseyside's Police Commissioner and her Deputy will unite with their colleagues from across the North-West at a regular meeting aimed at improving partnership working and collaboration.

Jane Kennedy and Cllr Sue Murphy meet with their PCC colleagues from across the region every quarter with the goals of sharing information and best practice and improving shared working.

This meeting will be held at the North West Regional Control Centre (RCC) in Newton-le-Willows. The PCC from across the North West will hear from the Chief Executive of the Association of PCCs (APCC) Nazir Afzal, as well have a presentation on the modern slavery. Up for discussion will also be the police funding formula, specialist capabilities and the impact of devolution.

This meeting will be followed by a meeting of the North West Joint Oversight Committee, during which the PCCs are able to monitor the existing collaboration arrangements. On the agenda for this meeting is a review of Titan, the North West Regional Organised Crime Unit (ROCU).

Titan was established in 2009 as a collaboration between the six police forces in Cumbria, Cheshire, Lancashire, Greater Manchester, Merseyside and North Wales to tackle serious organised crime that crosses county borders in the region. The mission of the unit is simple - to tackle organised crime groups causing the greatest levels of harm to communities in the North West. Find out more about Titan.

The Commissioners will also review the quarterly performance report on the North West Counter Terrorism Unit.
