The Police and Crime Panel
The Police and Crime Panel (PCP) have the power to scrutinise Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) activities, including the ability to review the Police and Crime Plan and annual report, request PCC papers and call the PCC to public hearings. The PCP can also veto decisions on the local Council Tax precept and the appointment of a new Chief Constable.
The panel can also seek a professional view from Her Majesty's Inspectorate of Constabulary and Fire & Rescue Services (HMICFRS) regarding potential dismissals, and will agree on a lead authority to hold central funding and provide scrutiny support. The Panel do not hold the police to account, as that is the role of the elected PCC.
The four local authorities in the Humberside Police area (East Riding of Yorkshire, Hull, North Lincolnshire and North East Lincolnshire) are responsible for establishing and maintaining the PCP. The Humberside Police and Crime Panel is made up of councillor members from each local authority, and a number of independent members. North Lincolnshire Council is the lead authority for the panel.
