Responsibility for administration

As of 11 May 2020, we (Leicester City Council) became responsible for the administration of the Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland Police and Crime Panel.

Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland Police and Crime Panel

We are the host authority for the Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland Police and Crime Panel. The panel is made up of representatives from each of the local councils served by Leicestershire Police across Leicester City, Leicestershire and Rutland. The panel also has two independent members.

Role of the panel

The Police and Crime Panel scrutinises the actions and decisions of the Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) and makes sure that information is available for the public.

The panel will support and challenge the PCC in carrying out their functions. It will focus on important strategic actions and decisions made by the PCC, including whether they have:

  • achieved the aims set out in their police and crime plan and annual report
  • considered the priorities of community safety partners
  • consulted appropriately with the public and victims

The panel has a range of powers to help it carry out its functions and specific responsibilities relating to the police and crime plan and annual report. The panel can: 

  • make reports and recommendations on the plan and annual report
  • publish all reports and recommendations that it makes
  • hold public meetings to discuss the annual report
  • ask for a professional hearing from HM Inspectorate of Constabulary to appoint an acting PCC if the elected one cannot carry out their role
  • hold confirmation hearings for senior staff
  • monitor complaints against the PCC and deal with non-criminal complaints
  • request the PCC attend panel meetings to answer questions.
