CRIME AND DISORDER SCRUTINY SEMINAR
The new powers: what they mean in practice
An opportunity to refresh knowledge on the legal powers for CDRP scrutiny. This session will also include some examples of promising notable practice which has been developed over the past few months.
Developing a protocol to govern the relationship
• Should you have a protocol to govern the way that scrutiny looks at the CDRP?
• What should the protocol cover?
• How should it be put together?
Will include examples of protocols from successful authorities.
CDRP and the council: Working in partnership
How to plan together to build an effective work programme with your partners.
Working in partnership with other scrutineers Covering issues such as:
• Two–tier working
• Joint working between local govt scrutiny and police auths.
• Co–opting other scrutineers onto a committee – informally and formally
“Are you eager to take advantage of the new powers under the Police and Justice Act to scrutinise crime and disorder, but worried that you lack the capacity, capability and confidence to do so? Are you a crime and disorder partner or a member of a police authority, intrigued by the new powers but unsure how they will affect you? This event will help you to tackle some of the issues which you will have to deal with in order to ensure that scrutiny can flourish, and be effective.This event is designed to complement an event being managed by LGiU in October which will provide a comprehensive policy introduction to CDRPs, and crime and disorder policy, for scrutineers unsure about where to begin.”
In April this year, local authorities gained new powers to investigate work being undertaken by the council’s crime and disorder reduction partnership. This seminar will look at what these new powers allow, how they should be used as a framework to deliver an improvement relationship between scrutiny and crime and disorder partners, and how local authorities and police authorities could work together to deliver enhanced police accountability.
