I will continue to help police and hold them to account, says PCC
CLIVE GRUNSHAW said that he has continued to scrutinise the work of Lancashire police, supporting and challenging to make sure they are doing everything they can to keep people safe and tackle crime.
Regular meetings with the Chief Constable and other senior leaders in the force and the Police and Crime Commissioner’s office is a key part of holding the force to account against the Police and Crime Plan, with meetings online during the lockdown.
Topics included the ongoing response in relation to coronavirus and working with the public on the rules and regulations, the 101 service and increased number of crimes being reported online and the peaceful protests in the county in relation to the Black Lives Matter movement.
Mr Grunshaw said: “As the public’s voice in policing it is really important to me that I raise issues that are important to people and ensure that policing in Lancashire is delivering the efficient, effective service that the public expect and deserve.
“After once again been named as outstanding when it comes to the way we use the resources at our disposal, it is crucial that we continue to maintain this high quality of service and the high standards of service that we have built here in Lancashire.
“The way the service has risen to the unique challenges brought by the pandemic, adapting the work that they do while still ensuring that day to day policing continued to keep people safe and take criminals off our streets, has been hugely impressive and I will continue to act as a critical friend to the force as we all work together to deliver for Lancashire.”
