At its meeting on the 28 March 2012 the Police Authority agreed to adopt a Lead Member governance model to apply from the Police Authority AGM on 20 June 2012 until the arrival of the Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) in November 2012.

The Lead Member model sees Police Authority business which has historically been addressed by working groups or Committees, being led by a Lead Member along with an officer from the Police Authority staff team and the associated Chief Officer Group (COG) officer and Constabulary staff.

The full Police Authority will continue to meet as a formal Committee up to November 2012.

Underlying this change in governance and oversight arrangements are the principles that the Authority will:

  • continue to deliver key areas of work;
  • meet statutory responsibilities;
  • publish core information on its website; and
  • receive written updates at its full Police Authority meetings from Lead Members

Core information relating to the work of the Lead Member will continue to be published on the website in publications.

In addition, the Authority has created an interim Independent Audit Committee in order to allow for a seamless handover to the PCC who will require an independent Audit Committee. This Committee will have public meetings and the dates and papers will be available on this website.

The Authority also retains its Standards and Remuneration Committees. Meeting agendas and documents for formal Committees will be available five working days before a meeting and the minutes will be available before the next committee meeting.

The Police Authority Scheme of Delegation has been updated to reflect these changes.

The full details of this model can be found in the papers for the full Police Authority in March and June 2012.

You can read the new terms of reference for this new way of working.
