Putting your views to the Chief Constable

A key role of a Police and Crime Commissioner is to present the views of the public and hold the Chief Constable to account. One of the forums in which the Acting Commissioner fulfils this obligation is through his Business Coordination Board meetings.

The Business Coordination Board is a monthly meeting between the Acting Commissioner, Constabulary Chief Officers and senior officers of the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner, chaired by the Acting Police and Crime Commissioner.  It is a forum in which current and future business is discussed between the senior leaders of the two bodies, focussing on issues relating to strategy, governance, business and holding the Chief Constable to account.
