Performance and Delivery Board

The Chief Constable answers questions from Matthew Scott at a previous Performance and Delivery Board meeting
One of the principle ways the PCC holds the force to account is at the quarterly Performance and Delivery Board.

Regular topics for discussion at the Performance and Delivery Board - previously called the Governance Board - include Kent Police's performance; the delivery of the Safer in Kent Plan; financial matters; staffing and culture; and collaboration with partner agencies.

The next Performance and Delivery Board meetings will take place on:
  • 5 June 2019 at 10am
  • 25 September 2019 at 10am
  • 11 December 2019 at 10am

All Performance and Delivery Board meetings are held at Kent Police Headquarters, Sutton Road, Maidstone, ME15 9BZ.

Members of the public are welcome to attend these meetings but should notify the OPCC in advance, by calling 01622 677055 or by email. Members of the media wishing to attend should call 01622 604343.‚Äč

Her Majesty's Inspectorate of Constabulary and Fire and Rescue Services (HMICFRS) independently assesses the effectiveness and efficiency of police forces and fire and rescue services.

It publishes reports based on its findings. Previous publications relevant to the Kent Police area, which the PCC uses to assist him in holding Kent Police to account, can be viewed on the HMICFRS website.

Our responses to recently-published HMICFRS reports

Read the OPCC response to HMICFRS' national report into fraud (2 April 2019)
Read the OPCC response to HMICFRS' report into Kent Police's crime data integrity (15 January 2019)

In addition HMICFRS requires police forces to prepare and submit their own detailed self-assesments. These reports, called Force Management Statements, are centred around each force assessing its short to medium-term future demand and stating how that demand might be met or managed. Kent Police published an abridged version of its Force Management Statement in autumn 2018, at the request of the PCC and in the interests of transparency.
