The panel overseeing the work of the Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) in Norfolk is inviting the public to submit questions to it.
The panel, which is made up of Norfolk county councillors and independent members, will meet with Stephen Bett, the PCC on Thursday, October 8, to consider the progress being made by the commissioner in delivering his plan, including the performance of services he has commissioned to deliver his objectives.
In addition, the panel will consider an update on Police Integrity Reforms which will impact on both the commissioner and his office.
Alec Byrne, chairman of the panel, said: “I look forward to hearing how the commissioned services Mr Bett is accountable for are performing. It is important that we have the opportunity to question him about these services and the impact they are having on crime and disorder reduction in Norfolk.”
Ahead of the meeting, the panel is inviting questions from the public as part of the public question time on the agenda.
Questions need to be submitted to by 5pm on Wednesday, September 23.
Each submitted question must be limited to a maximum of 100 words.
The questions must relate to the panel’s roles and responsibilities, not be substantially the same as a question which has been put at a meeting in the past six months, not be defamatory, frivolous, vexatious or offensive, not require the disclosure of confidential or exempt information and not refer to any matter of a personal nature.
Supplementary questions can be asked in person if the questioner, or a representative on their behalf, attends and the subject matter is the same as the original question.
The questions can be submitted by anyone who lives, works or studies in Norfolk.
The public can submit their questions by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or writing to the head of democratic services, providing their name, address and contact telephone number, at: Norfolk County Council, Democratic Services, County Hall, Martineau Lane, Norwich, NR1 2DH
The panel will next meet in the Edwards Room at County Hall at 10am.
