The Home Office has recently set out a timeline of developments for the transition to Police & Crime Commissioners. With 6 months to go before the first PCC elections, what should different organisations be doing to prepare, how will their introduction change the community safety and policing landscape and what are the defining issues that will see them elected?
Key Issues to be Discussed Include
- How should Police Authorities be managing the transition?
- What should CSPs be doing to prepare?
- What arrangements should local government be putting in to place to ensure the Policing and Crime Panel is effective?
- The Safer Future Communities project and what can VCSE organisations do to prepare?
- How are new funding and commissioning arrangements going to work?
- How can different organisations demonstrate the value of their work to the PCC?
- What will the Strategic Policing Requirement mean when it moves from shadow to live?
- What issues will be important to the public during the PCC elections?
- How do prospective PCC candidates themselves view the role and what issues do they plan to campaign on?
Delegates in the morning “Preparations” session will be briefed about and discuss the latest Government actions to facilitate the transition to Police & Crime Commissioners, and what different organisations should be doing to prepare.
The afternoon “PCC Politics” session will examine how the PCC candidates themselves view the role and the sort of issues they will campaign on, helping participants understand and prepare for the election process.
Who Should Attend?
Delegates will be drawn from all those with an interest in this area including: police officers, police authorities (both officers and members), local authorities (both officers and members), probation trusts, FRS, health, and central Government departments and bodies.
