The Police Reform and Social Responsibility Act 2011 underpins new governance and accountability arrangements for policing in Surrey, which include the formation of a Police and Crime Panel.
The role of the Panel will be to maintain a regular check and balance on the performance of the directly elected Police and Crime Commissioner. The Panel is a hosted by Surrey County Council, and consists of one elected member (councillor) from each of Surrey’s twelve local authorities and two co-opted independent members.
