Community safety

Norfolk police and crime panel

On 15 November 2012 the first Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) was elected for Norfolk. The Norfolk PCC is accountable for the delivery and performance of the Norfolk Constabulary on behalf of the electorate, and will set and shape the strategic objectives of the Police and work closely with agencies involved in community safety working. 
The Norfolk Police and Crime Panel has been established by the city, district and county councils to provide a ‘check and balance’ on the performance of the PCC and will both scrutinise the actions and decisions of the Commissioner and support and challenge the Commissioner in the exercise of their functions.
The Police and crime Panel is administered by Norfolk County Council and more information can be found below.

Norwich has low crime levels and is safe compared to other major urban areas. The city council is committed to improving community safety and reducing incidents of antisocial behaviour. One of the council’s corporate objectives is to ensure that the city is clean and safe and it works closely with partners, including the Police, Norfolk County Council and private and voluntary sector partners to help ensure this.
