The Panel this week had to hold a confirmation hearing for the Police and Crime Commissioner’s preferred candidate for Chief Constable, to replace Chris Sims who is leaving in January.

This required the Panel to review the proposed appointment and make a recommendation to the Commissioner.

This is a requirement under the Police and Social Responsibility Act 2011 and the reports for this item are available on this website.

The Panel agreed that the Commissioner should appoint David Thompson as Chief Constable for the West Midlands. The Panel letter confirming this has been published. Panel members agreed that Mr Thompson was an outstanding candidate and wish him well in his new role.


Panel asks Government to consider earlier publish of referendum principles

In February the Panel considered the PCC’s proposed precept (the amount of council tax raised for policing). However Members had to make a decision without knowing what increase in Council Tax would trigger a referendum because the late Government announcement of the referendum principles. The Panel has a very short timeframe in which to consider the precept before the region’s council tax bills are issued.

The Panel has written to the Department for Communities and Local Government expressing its concerns. Members felt this impacted on the Panel’s ability to scrutinise the PCC’s proposals on behalf of West Midland residents. They have urged the Minister to publish next year’s referendum principles earlier.
