PCC invites questions from the public on Covid-19 and the impact on policing to put to the Chief Constable

20 March 2020

As part of the regular scrutiny and support of the Chief Constable, Michael Lane is asking the public to submit their questions concerning how Covid-19 is impacting on policing and the plans that are in place to continue to keep you safer.

The Commissioner is inviting residents to submit their own questions for him to put to the Chief Constable on their behalf as part of his regular COMPASS (Commissioner’s Performance, Accountability, Scrutiny and Strategy) meetings. If you have any areas of concern on Covid-19 and policing that you would like the Commissioner to raise for you, please get in touch by 12 noon on Tuesday 24 March 2020.

The COMPASS meeting will take place on Thursday 26 March 2020 and will be filmed and available to access via the Commissioner’s digital platforms including here on the website. The film will show the Commissioner asking your questions and the Chief Constable’s answers.

Michael Lane said: “At this time when people face so much uncertainty and have significant concerns about Covid-19 I will focus my usual scrutiny session on performance with the Chief Constable on this matter. It is important for you to have the answers to any questions you may have to help reduce any of your concerns on how it is affecting the delivery of policing and to reassure you that police resources are being used as effectively and efficiently as possible during this challenging time to keep you all safer.

He continued: “These COMPASS meetings are how I hold the Chief Constable publicly to account, and a full video recording will be available to watch soon after the meeting next week, via my website and social media channels.”

Anyone wishing to submit a question is asked to submit them to the office of the Police and Crime Commissioner by 12 noon on Tuesday 24 March 2020, by contacting 01962 871595 or by emailing opcc@hampshire.pnn.police.uk.
