Scrutnising the police

How does the PCC scrutinise the police – and why?

When people ask the question 'what does a Police and Crime Commissioner actually do' one of the most common responses my colleagues and I often give is we're there to hold the police to account.

What does that actually mean? It's a good question, and an important one.

There are very good reasons why the police need to be scrutinised by an independent organisation.
