  • Please will you minute & thank Officers for their responsiveness regarding this year’s #citizenaudit. I understand new procedures are logged for recording top staff foreign travel training trips.. I will follow up to ensure changes made for proper scrutiny.
  • May I ask that a separate written report be submitted to this group & to Police & Crime Panel members on what went wrong, the action plan & transparency plan to right this wrong? Appreciate self report -what is the deal with legal firm?
  • Please as a start & besides open data & clear path to disclosure log.. will you add an Foi performance table to your comprehensive performance reports reported in these meetings? @CCNYP @DCCPhilCain
