Setting the priorities for Nottinghamshire Police, responding to the needs of communities, setting the budget for local policing, ensuring that local and national priorities are suitably resourced and monitoring the local performance of the force. Some of the duties are listed below:

  • Hold the Chief Constable to account for the performance of Nottinghamshire Police

  • Set out a five-year Police and Crime Plan, although it may be refreshed each year and may be fully reopened at the Commissioner's discretion

  • Set the amount of Council Tax local people will pay towards policing

  • Set the Annual Budget for policing in Nottinghamshire

  • Present a budget to the Police and Crime Panel (PCP) for scrutiny. The PCP has the authority to veto the proposed amount local people will pay towards policing (otherwise known as the precept)

  • If requested, attend meetings of the Police and Crime Panel to answer questions and explain decisions

  • There will be a reciprocal duty for Commissioners and responsible authorities to co-operate with each other and have regard to each other's priorities for the purposes of reducing crime and disorder (including antisocial behaviour), reducing reoffending and reducing substance misuse
