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 second meeting of the 2020/21 financial year.
On the agenda for discussion are the PCC's Police and Crime Plan priority of preventing crime and anti-social behaviour, an update on the governance arrangements and on the PCC's role of holding the Chief Constable to account.
The PCC will also present her Annual Report for 2019/20. This report was first drafted and provided to the Panel back in March, but due to the global Coronavirus pandemic, members were only able to provide their feedback at the last meeting in July.
Police and Crime Panel meetings are always open to the public. Due to the current government restrictions on meetings in light of the coronavirus pandemic, this meeting will be held virtually. If you would like to observe proceedings, please visit the Knowsley Council YouTube channel.
The papers for this meeting are always published five days ahead of this meeting and can be found by going to the Police and Crime Panel section on the Knowsley Council website.
