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.
