The Hampshire Police and Crime Panel (PCP) has been formed to hold the Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) for Hampshire to account. The Commissioner, Michael Lane, will set key policing priorities, for appointing senior officers and for setting the policing element of council tax.
The Police and Crime Panel is made up of representatives from each of the Local Authorities in the Hampshire Police area, which includes the cities of Portsmouth and Southampton, the Isle of Wight as well as Hampshire County Council and the 11 Borough and District authorities within it. Two non-political members of the Panel are also appointed to add to the collective spread of experience and knowledge.
Meeting formally around four times per year, the PCP will be able to examine and make recommendations on various aspects of the Commissioner’s activity, in particular powers include:
Democratic and Member Services
