Who polices the commissioners? Making Police and Crime Commissioners work for your place
IPPR North are holding this breakfast fringe as part of the LGA Annual Conference exploring how councils can prepare for the arrival of elected Police and Crime Commissioners (PCCs).
Wednesday 27 June, 8.00am-9.15am
Confirmed speakers at this event include Joanne Roney, Chief Executive of Wakefield Metropolitan District Council, Ian Loader, Professor of Criminology and Director of the Centre for Criminology at the University of Oxford, and Ed Cox, Director of IPPR North (chair).
Questions for exploration include
• How can local authorities inform the debate prior to the election of a PCC, to ensure that the wide range of policing and crime challenges are considered during the election debate?
• How can members be equipped to manage the risks of highly populist or single-issue PCCs?
• How can local authorities manage the risk of funding reductions in areas like neighbourhood policing and crime prevention work?
• Where are there opportunities for PCCs and local authorities to work together beyond policing, for example to reduce reoffending?
Please note: this event is only open to attendees of the LGA Annual Conference. If you would like further information please email firstname.lastname@example.org
This event is kindly supported by Capita
