What are our priorities
Strategies and plans, performance indicators, audits, inspections and reviews, including the Police and Crime Plan and Annual Report.
Police & Crime Plan
The Police & Crime Plan is a living document and is reviewed and refreshed periodically to ensure it continues to accurately reflect local and national priorities. You can view the current Police & Crime Plan here.
The PCC is also required to present an Annual Report for each financial year. You will find all of them here on or accountability page.
Reports presented to the OSPCC indicating service provision and performance assessments of the police force
Information on the performance of the OSPCC
The PCC is directly elected every four years by the public.
The Police & Crime Panel has been established to examine the actions and decisions of the Commissioner and to make information available to the public so that they in turn can hold the Police & Crime Commissioner to account.
You can also find information on the work of the Commissioner, her salary and expenses and how to invite her to speak to your community group here.
Reports by external inspectors and auditors
Statistical information provided to the OSPCC
Where statistical information is provided to the PCC, details will be published here as appropriate.
There are also a number of publically availably sources of data and information about policing, crime, community safety and criminal justice that you may be interested in, including:
Police.UK for neighbourhood level crime maps, police performance and information and advice
Office for National Statistics (ONS) – for statistics relating to crime, criminal justice, offenders and the police
Crime Survey for England & Wales – measuring the extent of crime in England and Wales by asking people whether they have experienced any crime in the past year
Home Office – statistics on hate crime, racist incidents, crime detection and crime against businesses
Ministry of Justice – statistics relating to the operation of the criminal and civil justice systems
Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabulary (HMIC) – independent policing inspectorate
Privacy Impact Assessments
Privacy Impact Assessments (PIA) are a tool that can be used to identify and minimise the privacy risks of projects. In particular, a PIA can reduce the risk of harm to individuals through the misuse of personal information. It can also help in the design of more efficient and effective processes for handling personal data.
Any PIAs used by the OPCC will be published here, either in full or summary format, as appropriate.
