Watch the June COMPASS meeting

20 July 2018

The COMPASS meeting held in June, when Michael Lane scrutinised the Chief Constable is now available to watch in full on YouTube.  You can watch the video above, or watch directly on YouTube to jump to the questions you are interested in.

Questions asked:

  • How is the Chief Constable planning to go about rebuilding public confidence in the Constabulary?
  • Are you reassured that the lessons that should have been learnt [in regards to the Gosport War Memorial Hospital investigations]?
  • Can you reassure us on your commitment and that of the Constabulary to future investigations?
  • [In regards to recent deaths at Mutiny Festival] What lessons have you learnt from this incident, and what improvements or arrangements for the rest of this season and strategically for the future?
  • What are your priorities for protecting people from illegal drugs?  Are your teams making enough impact on interrupting supply?
  • The statistics show that many crimes are reducing, but violent crime and knife crime are rising. What are you and your Constabulary doing to tackle this issue?
  • You take a national role for Children and Young People and you prioritise early intervention. How is that early intervention done locally?
  • What is it that only police can do in terms of removing vulnerabilities of your people?
  • Domestic abuse is an area of concern. Do vulnerabilities connect, and where can the police make the most impact?
  • I’m often asked the need for more visible policing. Should police officers be in stations or do you want them to be visible?
  • What can only policing do? If 80% of policing is not directly related to crime – can you reassure the public about that? What if those resources were directed at crime?
  • If the public were asking you to re-tune to particular crime types, how would you hear that, get that information?
