Public Meetings

The role of the Police & Crime Commissioner is to hold the Chief Constable to account for policing services in Cumbria. The way in which the Commissioner does this is at a Public Accountability Conference whereby areas of performance are discussed, financial matters are monitored and decisions are made. The members of the Public Accountability Conference are the Police & Crime Commissioner, the OPCC Chief Executive, OPCC Chief Finance Officer and the Chief Constable.

The Commissioner already publishes information regarding performance and this can be viewed here. Decisions taken by the Commissioner are also published and can be viewed here.

In order that the Commissioner can be transparent in their way of working Public Accountability Conference meetings are held on a regular basis, in public to allow members of the press and public to be able to attend. A guidance notice has been prepared to assist those in attending the meeting as to processes and procedures and can be viewed here. Public meeting and general protocols have been agreed by the Police & Crime Commissioner and can be viewed here.  The meetings are generally held at Carleton Hall, Penrith at 10.00 am unless otherwise notified.

An agenda for each of the public meetings will be published 5 working days prior to the meeting date. Minutes and appropriate reports will be published following the meeting.  To view the agenda and reports please click on the relevant date below:
