The Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) has a Commissioning Framework and Commissioning Strategy.
This is to make sure Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner (OPCC) reviews each service provider to make sure staff know, who provides the best option for the people of Cleveland.
The Framework provides information and guidance on commissioning across all PCC activities.
Commissioning services helps the OPCC to deliver the aims and objectives in the Police and Crime Plan.
Overview of Commissioning
The OPCC defines commissioning as: “the identification and assessment of need and the development of policy direction or selection of the most appropriate delivery mechanism by which to satisfy need in a cost effective way.”
The PCC has a variety of funding streams available for commissioning and grant giving.
There is no separate grant for community safety work. The PCC allocates a small part of the main police grant for community safety grants and/or commissioning each year.
