The role of the Police, Fire & Crime Commissioner is to hold the Chief Constable and the Chief Fire Officer to account for their respective 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, Fire & Crime Commissioner, the OPFCC Chief Executive, OPFCC Chief Finance Officer and either the Chief Constable or the Chief Fire Officer.

The Commissioner already publishes information regarding Constabulary performance and decisions taken by the Commissioner.

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. To assist those in attending the meeting as to processes and procedures a guidance notice has been prepared. Public meeting and general protocols have been agreed by the Police, Fire & Crime Commissioner. 

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:
