04 April 2017

On Tuesday 4 April in Aldershot, the Police and Crime Commissioner Michael Lane will be publicly holding the Chief Constable to account on the performance of Hampshire Constabulary, and he is inviting members of the public to attend and submit questions.

At the Commissioner’s Performance, Accountability, Scrutiny and Strategy (COMPASS) meeting, Michael Lane will be asking the Chief Constable, Olivia Pinkney, what Hampshire Constabulary’s strategy is for addressing the issues that require police attention in Aldershot and the wider Hampshire Constabulary policing area.

The Commissioner is offering members of the public the opportunity to attend the event at Aldershot Library from 2.30pm to 4.30pm on Tuesday 4 April 2017. Click the link below for a map and to access directions.

Anyone wishing to attend, or submit a question, is asked to register their interest with the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner by midday on Monday 27 March, by contacting 01962 871595 or

Members of the public unable to attend the meeting can also submit their questions for the Chief Constable directly to the Police and Crime Commissioner’s Office by midday Monday 27 March. In order to be considered by the Commissioner, questions must:

  • be related to crime and policing in Aldershot or the wider policing area
  • not discuss specific or individual cases or investigations
  • must relate to the policing responsibilities of Hampshire Constabulary.

It is the Commissioner’s statutory role to hold the Chief Constable to account on the performance of the police force on behalf of the public, and the COMPASS meetings provide an opportunity to do this on a regular basis.

The meeting will be filmed and available to view here on our website.
