We hold many meetings and events.
This page lists those meetings, and the links below will give access to meeting dates, agendas, mintues and summaries.
MEETINGS HELD IN PUBLIC
The full Police Authority and its Committees have decision making powers and meet in public.
If you have a concern or wish a topic to be raised or discussed, please contact either the Police Authority Office or a local Police Authority member with details of your query.
The Police Authority has agreed the following scheme with effect from 14 December 2010 to enable members of the public to ask questions at police authority meetings:
a) Questions to be limited to full Police Authority meetings.
b) Questions to be submitted in writing to the Chief Executive not less than five working days prior to the meeting.
c) Questions must relate to the duties and responsibilities of the Police Authority.
d) Chief Executive, in consultation with the Chair, to determine whether it falls within the remit of the Police Authority. Questions on operational matters to be referred to the Chief Constable for separate response.
e) The order of questions to be put will be determined by the Chair.
f) A 15 minute limit on public questions at any one meeting, unless the Police Authority agrees by resolution to extend this period for that meeting.
g) One question and one supplemental per person per meeting.
h) A question will be rejected if it is substantially the same question that has been asked at an earlier meeting within the past six months.
Please note that during some parts of the meetings the public and press may be excluded where the business involves the likely disclosure of exempt or confidential information as defined by the provisions of Section 12A of the Local Government Act 1972.
These meetings are not held in public, but meeting summaries are published on this web site. Meeting summaries are usually published within a few days of the meeting being held. Please click on the links below to access these summaries.

Policing Matters Meetings Update
Police Authorities are to be abolished in November 2012 and replaced with directly elected Police and Crime Commissioners. During this transition period, when potential candidates will be coming forward and starting their election campaigns, the Police Authority will not be holding Policing Matters meetings. However, members of the public still have the opportunity to raise issues with Police Authority members by other means such as contacting the Police Authority office or contacting members direct and may ask a question at the full Police Authority meeting.
