One of the roles of the Police and Crime Commissioner is to produce a Police and Crime Plan for the county.
Since being elected Police and Crime Commissioner for Cambridgeshire and Peterborough in May 2016, Jason Ablewhite has spent his first few months meeting as many people as possible in order to prepare a Police and Crime Plan that meets the needs of communities.
The draft framework for the Police and Crime Plan 2017-2020 is now available
The Police and Crime Plan must set out:
- Police and crime objectives – which must ‘have regard’ to the relevant priorities of each responsible authority, (such as local authorities, health, probation trusts and the fire and rescue service).
- How financial and other resources will be allocated – including setting the precept and issuing crime and disorder reduction grants. The Commissioner can issue grants to any organisation which they consider will contribute to securing crime and disorder reduction in an area.
- The means by which the Chief Constable will report back to the commissioner on how they are delivering the policing service.
