Katy Bourne and Martin Richards to give evidence at Home Affairs committee

The Argus: Katy Bourne and Martin Richards to give evidence at Home Affairs committee Katy Bourne and Martin Richards to give evidence at Home Affairs committee

Sussex Police and Crime Commissioner Katy Bourne and Sussex Police Chief Constable Martin Richards will give evidence to MPs today at the Home Affairs Select Committee (HASC) in Parliament regarding PCCs and their progress to date.

Issues on the agenda include the role of PCCs in promoting police integrity; encouraging public awareness and engagement in their work; the relationship between PCCs and their police and crime panels and the effects that PCCs have had on reducing crime since taking office.

Commenting ahead of tomorrow’s Select Committee Katy Bourne said: "This is the first time I have appeared before the HASC. I welcome the opportunity to discuss my role as Police and Crime Commissioner for Sussex and recognise the importance for PCCs to be objectively scrutinised and held to account in this way.”

The HASC is due to start at 2.45pm.

Hope they see the futility of the whole exercise & recommend that Policing is best left to professionals, not young girls or aspiring politicians.

Read the Shadow Sussex Police and Commissioner's report. You will find it more interesting than what the Argus has to say!

I wrote to Katy Bourne about Sussex Police's disgraceful lack of investigation into my mother's death; her PA wrote back saying she wasn't interested. The point of a PCC is what exactly? Oh yeah, to deal "only" with complaints about Chief Constables, is what Ms Bourne's office said. The public can go shoot themselves as far as she is concerned.
