Police & Crime Plan

Development and Preparation of the Police & Crime Plan

The Police Reform & Social Responsibility Act 2011 introduces a duty on the Police & Crime Commissioner (PCC) to prepare a Police & Crime Plan as soon as practicable after taking office. The Police & Crime Plan should determine, direct and communicate the PCC's priorities during their period in office and must set out for the period of issue:

    • the PCC's Police and Crime objectives for the area;
    • the policing of the police area which the Chief Officer of Police is to provide;
    • the financial and other resources which the PCC is to provide to the Chief Officer of Police;
    • the means by which the Chief Officer of police will report to the PCC on the Chief Officer’s provision of policing;
    • the means by which the Chief Officer of Police’s performance in providing policing will be measured; and
    • the Crime And Disorder Reduction Grants which the PCC is to make, and the conditions (if any) of those grants.


    The draft Police & Crime Plan should then be sent to the Police & Crime Panel, allowing a reasonable amount of time for it to be considered.

The PCC must have regard and provide a response to any report or recommendations made by the panel. The PCC must also publish that response and the plan itself, and send a copy of the Plan (or variation) to the Chief Constable.

The PCC may vary an existing plan or issue a new one at any time, and the frequency with which this is done should be determined on the basis of local need.
