Annual Report 2012/13


To approve the Annual Report for 2012/13

Decision Summary

Under Section 12 of the Police Reform and Social Responsibility Act 2011, each Police and Crime Commissioner must produce an annual report on the exercise of the organisation’s functions in the financial year and the progress in meeting the police and crime objectives in the Police and Crime Plan.

The annual report reflects the transition from the Police Authority to the Police and Crime Commissioner during 2012/13, with the Commissioner taking up his role on 22 November and the Police and Crime Plan being set for the new financial year.

As soon as practicable after producing the annual report, the Commissioner must send the report to the Police and Crime Panel. The Commissioner must attend before the Panel at a public meeting, present the report to the Panel and answer the panel’s questions on the report. The Commissioner must give the panel a response to any report or recommendation on the annual report and publish any such response in a manner determined by the Panel. The Panel will review the annual report when they meet on 18 July 2013.

The Commissioner must arrange for the annual report to be published.
