The LGA will provide comprehensive support via existing LGA resources and a dedicated team. Police and crime commissioners (PCCs) will direct and influence the LGA's policy and lobbying through a new Police Executive Board.
The Police Executive Board, will represent the views and concerns of police and crime commissioners, ensuring that local circumstances have a voice in the national context and take the lead on all other day-to-day issues affecting police and crime commissioners. The chair of the Police Executive Board will also have a place on the LGA Safer and Stronger Communities Board.
A new wider Police Commission will meet four times a year to provide a forum for all police and crime commissioners in membership to discuss matters of common concern, share ideas and exchange good practice. Meetings will be held around the country and will provide an opportunity to shape policy development and to influence Members of the Police Executive Board.
The team of staff supporting the new police organisations will report to the head of programmes responsible for the Safer and Stronger Communities Board. Additional support would be drawn from existing resources within the organistion.
