COMPASS on the Isle of Wight

24 June 2017

On Saturday 24 June in Newport, the Police and Crime Commissioner Michael Lane will be publicly holding the Chief Constable to account on the performance of the 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 on the Isle of Wight and the wider Hampshire Constabulary policing area.

Anyone wishing to attend, or submit a question, is asked to register their interest with the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner (OPCC) by midday on Wednesday 14 June, by contacting 01962 871595 and speaking to Richard Martin or emailing

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 Wednesday 14 June. In order to be considered by the Commissioner, questions must:

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