Commissioner holds Police Chief to account during monthly meeting


The Chief Constable of Nottinghamshire Police says the force is attempting to avoid criminalising children and young people where possible by allowing them to give back to their community and diverting them away from low-level crime.  

It comes after Nottinghamshire Police and Crime Commissioner Caroline Henry asked her the following on behalf of Sherwood resident Robin: “What are local neighbourhood beat teams doing to reduce the numbers of children and young people being criminalised?”

A large part of Commissioner Henry’s role is to hold Nottinghamshire Police to account and ensure an effective policing service is being delivered for the people of the county and ensuring the public’s voice is being heard.

Each month, Commissioner Henry holds an Accountability Board meeting with the Chief Constable to discuss a range of topics relating to key performance indicators for Nottinghamshire Police and uses this time to ensure time and resources are being used efficiently and effectively.

This month we invited the public to submit their questions and concerns on neighbourhood crime, which were addressed by Nottinghamshire Police Chief Constable Kate Meynell and Chief Superintendent Sukesh Verma.
