There is a requirement of the PCC to make decisions and record them in an open and transparent way. To aid the effectiveness of this process and to ensure good governance of the organisation it is important that everyone works to the same process and procedure in having decisions approved, recording those decisions and most importantly supporting the reasons the decision has been made. This document sets out the process to be followed for decisions to be made by the PCC for Cleveland.

The Cleveland Police Force currently has a Temporary Chief Constable and therefore there is a need to recruit and make a permanent appointment. The attached document has been produced that takes into account Police Regulations where necessary and proposes a document that can accompany any advert for the appointment of a Chief Constable for Cleveland. It should be noted that these are DRAFT and therefore are open to change and negotiation as part of the recruitment process although it is recommended that any changes are reviewed before being agreed to ensure that they are within the Police Regulations.

To instigate the recruitment process
for a Chief Constable of Cleveland Police.

There is a need to recruit a Chief Constable for the Cleveland Force area. With a number of other Force areas having to recruit Chief Constables (nineteen in total) it is believed Cleveland should recruit sooner rather than later in order to reach out to a number of potential candidates ahead of other Forces.
