Whether you are a member of the public, a VCF organisation or a local authority partner, our Merseyside VCF Sector Police & Crime Commissioner Network aims to give you all the information you will need to learn more about the changes to police accountability.
The Network was developed as a direct response to the election of the Merseyside PCC in November 2012. The Network engages a wide range of Merseyside VCFSE Sector groups, supported by statutory partners and wider organisations, to engage, inform and influence the PCC / PCC office, and to support the Sector engage with the changing commissioning and decision-making landscape within a Merseyside community safety / criminal justice system context.
“I have huge admiration for the energy and commitment that the VCFSE Sector brings and their advice and insight is invaluable to me.”
– Jane Kennedy, Police and Crime Commissioner for Merseyside
The Network aims to ensure that the VCFSE Sector is a full and active partner in delivering services within the community safety / criminal justice agenda and provides a forum for active discussion with the PCC office. This will include demonstrating the key contributions the Merseyside VCFSE Sector makes in addressing community safety and criminal justice related challenges across Merseyside and enabling opportunities for closer working within the VCFSE Sector in designing and delivering relevant services.
