The Cumbria Police and Crime Panel (PCP) has been established to scrutinise and support the work of the Commissioner and is one of the key checks and balances in relation to monitoring their performance. (The PCP is not there to scrutinise the Chief Constable). The Commissioner will be required to consult with the PCP on his or her plans and budget for policing, as well as the council tax precept and certain key appointments.
Cumbria County Council is the host local authority for the PCP and will provide administrative and other support to the panel and its members. For more information go to the Cumbria PCP website http://cumbriapcp.org.uk
