As the Police and Crime Commissioner, I will hold the Chief Constable to account for the delivery of the priorities set out in this plan, and will have regard to criminal justice and community safety priorities to promote partnership working.

I will hold monthly meetings with the Chief Constable and receive written and verbal performance reports.  Relevant information and decisions of significant public interest will be published to enable the communities of Gwent to assess the performance of both myself and the Chief Constable in carrying out our duties.

I will also conduct regular meetings with partners to discuss progress and performance and promote effective partnership working. Details of these meetings, along with relevant and appropriate performance information, will also be published on a regular basis.
