PCC Mark Shelford will hold his next Performance and Accountability Board with Chief Constable Sarah Crew on Tuesday 9th May at 2pm.

The discussion will be broadcast live for 30 minutes on Facebook Live.

The broadcast will then be uploaded to the PCC’s website.

In the upcoming meeting, the PCC will ask questions relating to the quarterly performance report, which looks at Avon and Somerset Police’s performance against the national policing priorities and Avon and Somerset Police and Crime Plan. There will be a particular focus on domestic homicides, drug crime and male violence against women and girls.

The PCC will also discuss rural crime issues that local people have raised with him and how Avon and Somerset tackle anti-social behaviour.

PCC Mark Shelford said: “The data from the quarterly performance report provides an opportunity to reflect on the police’s current performance and ask questions regarding what steps are being taken to make necessary improvements for our communities.”

The Performance and Accountability Board is a meeting that sees the PCC hold Chief Constable Sarah Crew to account for delivering policing that is efficient and effective by scrutinising and asking questions about police performance and priorities in Avon and Somerset.
