Partners include organisations that work on community safety, crime, drugs, health or criminal justice locally, or as part of the police and crime panel, who scrutinise the performance and decisions of the Commissioner.
There is a duty on the Commissioner, when carrying out their functions, to:
- have regard to the relevant priorities of each responsible community safety and criminal justice partner
- along with community safety and criminal justice partners, act in cooperation with each other for matters of crime and disorder
- along with criminal justice bodies in the Gwent area, make arrangements (so far as it is appropriate to do so) for the exercise of functions to provide an efficient and effective criminal justice system for Gwent.
