Police & Crime
The Greater Manchester Police and Crime Panel
- The Panel is part of the new arrangements for developing accountability of policing and partnership working on crime and community safety. The Greater Manchester Panel will work with the Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) to shape the strategic thinking and direction on police and crime issues. The ambition is for the Panel and Commissioner to form a strong partnership.
- The Panel will also provide checks and balances on the performance of the directly elected Police and Crime Commissioner, and, will help to shape thinking on their priorities. The Panel will :-
- review the Police and Crime Plan
- consider, and possibly veto, the PCCs police precept
- consider, and possibly veto, the PCCs nomination for Chief Constable
- consider the PCCs annual report
- consider complaints made against the PCC
- The Panel is made up of 12 people; nine Council Leaders, the Salford City Mayor, and two independent members who have the skills, knowledge and experience of wider criminal justice and community safety issues. Both independent members bring a wealth of experience of working in the voluntary sector, on policing, health and community safety issues. Biographies of the two independent members – Maqsood Ahmad OBE and Diane Curry OBE – can be viewed/downloaded below.
The Police and Crime Panel will meet on the last Friday of each month. All meetings are held in public. Meeting papers can be found using the calendar on the right hand side of this page.
