Merseyside's Police Commissioner is today meeting with the Police and Crime Panel, the body which scrutinses 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 fifth meeting of the 2019/20 financial year. On the agenda for discussion are the Commissioner's Police and Crime Plan priority of supporting victims, protecting vulnerable people and maintaining public safety and an update on the governance arrangements following recommendations made by the Panel.
The PCC will also present her proposal for the police 'precept' - the part of local council tax which goes directly to the police. This follows on from a consultation currently being run to find out if local people would be willing a pay a little more to protect frontline policing. Find out more here.
These meetings are always open to the public and you are welcome to attend.
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 here.
