Staffordshire Commissioner to review Police performance at public meeting

The fire at the Crooked House pub, Staffordshire Police’s response to vehicle crime, and culture within the service are among the topics Staffordshire Commissioner for Police, Fire & Rescue and Crime Ben Adams will discuss with Chief Constable Chris Noble at a public meeting taking place on Wednesday 4 October.

During the Police Public Performance Meeting, which will be broadcast live online from 2.30pm, the Commissioner will ask the Chief Constable about the progress the force is making to deliver the priorities detailed in his Police & Crime Plan.

Staffordshire Commissioner for Police, Fire & Rescue and Crime Ben Adams said: “Part of my role as Commissioner is to monitor the force’s performance on behalf of the communities of Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent.

“These meetings give people the opportunity to hear for themselves about the progress the force is making, and I would encourage anyone wanting to hear more about any of the topics discussed to follow Wednesday’s meeting, which will be live-streamed online and available to watch in full afterwards.”

Topics discussed at the meeting will include:

  • A review of the Staffordshire Police’s progress against the areas for improvement identified by His Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabulary and Fire & Rescue Services (HMICFRS)
  • Operation Bormus, a force priority which focuses on the activity of criminal groups involved in the organised theft of vehicles
  • Ongoing work to ensure the right culture and values are embedded across Staffordshire Police
  • The Crooked House pub, which attracted international attention following its suspected arson and subsequent demolition earlier in the summer

The Police Public Performance Meeting will be live streamed online from 2.30pm on Wednesday 4 October, and will also be available to view afterwards.
