A key decision is one which will have a significant or ongoing impact to communities in Merseyside. It may also be financially significant, in terms of spending or savings for the service or function concerned.

Many decisions taken by the Police and Crime Commissioner arise from her statutory duties and she is required to record and publish those decisions.

In order that you can understand why the Commissioner has made the decisions which she has, Jane has approved a Policy Statement on The Making and Publication of Decisions of Significant Public Interest.

This policy statement establishes the approach and principles for decision-making by the Commissioner and outlines the decision-making process, together with providing information on how key decisions will be determined, recorded and publicised.

Please find below links to all key decisions made by the Commissioner:

Jane wants your views on policing funding today...

The Police Commissioner has to set the police budget soon.

She wants your views on  if you would be willing to contribute an extra 19p a week in your council tax  to enable the Chief Constable to recruit 160 new police officers next year, as well help balance the budget and protect jobs?

Without the extra funding the Commissioner will have to reduce the budget, the recruitment of new officers can’t
go ahead and the Chief Constable will be required to cut back on the service again.
