Each force area has a Police and Crime Panel to maintain a regular check and balance on the performance of the Commissioner on behalf of the electorate. The Commissioner is also required to consult with the Panel on their plans and budget for policing, as well as the level of council tax and the appointment of a Chief Constable.
The Panel is made up of ten local councillors and two co-opted independent members. Conwy County Borough Council is the ‘Host Authority’ for the North Wales Police and Crime Panel and provides the required support services for the effective operation and discharge of duties of the Police and Crime Panel.
Visit the North Wales Police and Crime Panel website for further information including membership details, minutes and agendas.
