Force Performance

Public Accountability Conference

The Public Accountability Conferences allows the Commissioner to scrutinise Constabulary performance in a transparent and fair process. The Commissioner receives quarterly performance updates and thematic reports around priority areas of policing including, domestic abuse, child sexual exploitation, sexual offences, rural crime, anti-social behaviour and reducing reoffending. This is supported by regular one to one meetings between the Chief Constable and Commissioner.

The Accountability Framework

The COPCC has developed a robust accountability framework to monitor the performance of Cumbria Constabulary and to enable scrutiny of the key areas of business. Key performance indicators were set with the Chief Constable at the start of the financial year in support of the objectives within the new police and crime plan.

Monitoring and Accountability

The PCC and Chief Constable carry out a large number of internal inspections each year. These are undertaken by either the Constabulary itself or through the joint programme of linked audits undertaken by internal and external auditors. There are also a number of external inspections undertaken of the Constabulary, by Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabulary (HMIC). Reports from external inspections are considered by the PCC. Where actions are required and as appropriate the necessary improvements are monitored by the PCC through the Public Accountability Conference and progress against action plans. All HMIC inspections of the Constabulary are available on the PCCs website. Overall therefore there are robust and effective arrangements for ensuring that policing services are delivered in accordance with the PCCs Objectives.
