Lincolnshire Police and Crime Panel

The Lincolnshire Police and Crime Panel scrutinises the actions and decisions of the Police and Crime Commissioner for Lincolnshire.

The Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) for Lincolnshire is responsible for deciding the priorities and budget for the Lincolnshire police force and is accountable to the public for the performance of the police force.

The Lincolnshire Police and Crime Panel scrutinises the PCC and has a number of powers and responsibilities, including:

• Scrutinising the actions and decisions of the Police and Crime Commissioner
• Reviewing the draft Police and Crime Plan to ensure local priorities have been considered
• Scrutinising and commenting upon the Annual Report of the PCC
• Reviewing and reporting on the precept proposed by the PCC. The Panel has the right to veto the Commissioner's proposed policing precept
• Holding confirmation hearings for the proposed appointment of a Chief Constable and senior PCC support staff

The Panel does not scrutinise the performance of the Chief Constable as this is the responsibility of the PCC.
