The Police Reform & Social Responsibility Act 2011 introduced new structural arrangements for policing, including the replacement of police authorities with directly-elected Police & Crime Commissioners (PCC) for each police area. The Act also required the Council to establish a Police & Crime Panel (PCP) to scrutinise the Northamptonshire PCC in order to promote openness in the transaction of police business. The Northamptonshire PCP has the following functions: Reviewing and responding to the PCCs Draft Police & Crime Plan, Proposed Precept and Annual Report; Reviewing and responding to proposed senior appointments; Reviewing the proposed removal by the PCC of the Chief Constable; Power to suspend the PCC if charged with a serious criminal offence; and Scrutinising decisions and actions taken by the PCC in discharging their functions.
Councillor Ann Addison is South Northamptonshire Council’s representative on the Northamptonshire Police and Crime Panel
