Information about Wiltshire Police and Crime Panel

The Wiltshire Police and Crime Panel has been established to hold the Police and Crime Commissioner to account and scrutinise their work. The panel will act as a critical friend to the Commissioner – to support the Commissioner as well as challenge them.

The panel has important decision making powers in that it can veto the precept and Chief Constable appointment.

The panel will:

·       review, put questions to the Police and Crime Commissioner at a public meeting, and make a report or recommendation (as necessary) on the annual report;

·       review the Police and Crime Plan and ensure local priorities have been considered;

·       hold confirmation hearings in respect of proposed senior appointments made by the Police and Crime Commissioner and report on the proposed appointment of the Chief Constable;

·       review and make a report and recommendation (as necessary) on the proposed precept;

·       fulfil functions in relation to complaints about conduct matters, in accordance with the responsibilities accorded to the panel by the Police Reform and Social Responsibility Act 2011;

·       appoint an Acting Police and Crime Commissioner if necessary;

·       suspend the Police and Crime Commissioner if it appears to the panel that the Commissioner has been charged in the United Kingdom or Isle of Man with an offence which carries a maximum term of imprisonment exceeding two years.
