Purpose of session
This is the Committee’s first of two evidence sessions for its inquiry into the proposed new elected Police and Crime Commissioners. It is an opportunity to explore how the new proposals will affect the Metropolitan Police, to question witnesses about the relationship between Chief Constables and elected Police and Crime Commissioners and to probe whether and how “operational independence” should be defined.

Rt. Hon Keith Vaz MP, Chair of the Committee, said:
“The landscape of policing looks set to change considerably in the near future if plans to implement directly elected individuals go ahead. The Committee looks forward to questioning the witnesses on the impact this will have on policing in the 21st Century.”
