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 COPS meetings provide an opportunity to do this on a regular basis.
COPS (Commissioner’s Oversight of Policing Services), sees the PCC with the Chief Constable in a live social media event and the public can watch and ask questions on the day or submit their questions in advance.
The standard agenda for COPS meetings is as follows:
- Welcome from PCC Donna Jones and Chief Constable Scott Chilton
- Meeting terms of reference and rules of engagement
- Quick review of pre-submitted questions and themes
- Pre-submitted questions
- Live questions
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.
You can find the last session here. Future sessions will be advertised two weeks in advance with an agenda.
When questions are open, you will be able to submit them below:
