Commissioner & Chief Officers to be heard.
Members received an update from the Commissioner regarding the following matters:
· There had been NPCC call-ins on safety and security of MPs following the death of Sir David Amess.
· Two new Assistant Commissioners had been appointed to the City of London Police and would be joining toward the end of the year.
· On the Policing Plan and Force Strategy – there was a legislative requirement to produce an annual policing plan. Assistant Commissioner McLaren, who had been appointed to take over as Commissioner, informed Members that she would be taking the opportunity of new management and the post-pandemic to redraft the Corporate Plan and rename it the ‘Policing Strategy’. This would be brought forward to Members in due course.
· The Chair noted that he had discussed with the Assistant Commissioner how the Force might get a similar level of engagement on national policing priorities as it did with local policing.
RESOLVED, that the update be noted.
