Public Accountability Meeting

>>Broadcast LIVE<<
Scrutinising the performance of the police and fire service.

The formal meeting that performs this important role is the monthly Public accountability meeting.

The meeting is made up from members of the Executive Board, other Chief Officers and Heads of Department. It supported by performance and change management / planning staff.

The Commissioner, Chief Constable and Chief Fire Officer chair the meeting jointly because they all expect their services to be performing at its best and all have a role in ensuring actions are delivered by the teams reporting into them.

Jointly chairing the meeting also embeds their philosophy of working in close partnership.

Output of the Public accountability meeting is provided to the Police, Fire and Crime Panel for North Yorkshire on a quarterly basis.

Following these meetings, the Commissioner, Chief Constable and Chief Fire Officer will publish monthly reports detailing the performance of North Yorkshire Police and North Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service.

Performance reports are available from October 2013 for North Yorkshire Police and from 26 February 2019 for North Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service.
