Meetings & Decisions


The Police and Crime Commissioner's formal business is conducted at a number of regular meetings.

All the information about these meetings and the agendas, papers and reports connected with them can be found using the links below:

Please find an OPCC Meeting Planner detailing when these meetings are expected to be held during 2019.

In July 2015, a new Joint Police and Fire and Rescue Committee was established to consider on-going and potential future collaboration between Merseyside Police and Merseyside Fire & Rescue Service. Committee papers for these meetings can be found here.

Partner events

In order to ensure the best use of diminishing resources and avoid unnecessary duplication, the PCC completes the vast majority of her public engagement alongside partner agencies, utilising where possible existing engagement provision. This ensures the widest possible section of the Merseyside community is reached including minority groups who may be the most vulnerable members of our society.

Key Decisions

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, ordered chronologically by year:
