Improving scrutiny and transparency

18th September 2020

The Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner for Gwent is working with the Gwent Police and Crime Panel to improve scrutiny of Gwent Police’s performance.

The team led a workshop for  the Panel to help them understand the improvements that have been made to performance reporting against the Commissioner’s Police and Crime Plan

Police and Crime Commissioner Jeff Cuthbert said: “It is my responsibility to hold the Chief Constable to account on behalf of the public, to ensure that Gwent Police is delivering against my Police and Crime Plan, and that they are delivering the very best service to the people of Gwent.

“In turn, it is the job of the Police and Crime Panel to hold me to account, and therefore it is essential that they have access to the right information, in a format that is easy to understand, to ensure open and honest scrutiny.

“My team has been working hard to improve the way performance is reported and I would like to thank them for all of their hard work. I would also like to thank the Police and Crime Panel Chair Gillian Howells, the performance subgroup, and all panel members for their support.”
