COMPASS meetings

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.

COMPASS  stands for “Commissioner’s Performance, Accountability, Scrutiny and Strategy” meetings, where the PCC challenges the Chief Constable on police priorities, and the questions and concerns of the public.

The Commissioner invites residents to submit their own questions for him to put to the Chief Constable on their behalf.

If you have any areas of concern that you would like the Commissioner to raise for you, please get in touch with the office by contacting us.

Michael Lane said: “As I represent you and act as your champion please let me know your concerns and I will put your questions to the Chief Constable so that she can provide reassurance that police resources are being used as effectively and efficiently as possible, recognising any issues that are on your minds.

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 meetings, via this page on my website and on my social media channels.”
