Latest news

Thank you to those of you that contributed to the consultation on the Governance of the Fire and Rescue Service.  Following the consultation a business case was formally submitted to the Home Office in October 2017. It was then independently assessed by the Chartered Institute of Public Finance and Accountancy (CiPFA) in December 2017.  On 26 March 2018 the Home Secretary approved the proposal for the Commissioner to take over governance of the Fire and Rescue Service from the Fire Authority.

He will become the Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner.

Getting involved

There are lots of ways in which members of the public can get involved in policing, from helping the Commissioner to set policing objectives to becoming a volunteer.

A Police and Crime Commissioner has a duty to consult with members of the public and take their views into account when developing the Police and Crime Plan. This engagement is done in many different ways such as:

  • meeting people in the community
  • attending local events, meetings
  • contributing to partnership groups, and
  • online engagement (including the forums on this website)

You can find out more about any forthcoming priority setting meetings and events in your area by visiting the ‘Local Policing’ section of the Cambridgeshire Constabulary website for details.

Surgeries

The Commissioner values the opinions of people who live and work in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough and wants more people to get involved with policing. The Commissioner runs regular surgeries to hear any concerns and issues from members of the public. Details of any future surgeries can be found in the events section of this website. Contact the Commissioner’s office if you would like to book an appointment.

Volunteers

The Commissioner is always looking for people to volunteer for the Independent Custody Visitors’ Scheme.

There are also many opportunities to volunteer for the Constabulary: for example by joining the Cambridgeshire Special Constabulary http://www.cambs-police.co.uk/recruitment/specials/ joining the StreetWatch scheme in Peterborough or a Speedwatch scheme in your local area.
