Meeting with Humberside PCC, 26th May 2022

Cottingham Parish Council has secured a public meeting with the Humberside Police and Crime Commissioner, Jonathan Evison.

This will take place at 7:30pm on Thursday 26th May in the Civic Hall.

It is outside the remit of the Commissioner to comment on operational matters that are the jurisdiction of Humberside Police. However, the Commissioner will be accompanied by Chief Inspector for the East Riding Neighbourhood, Derek Hussain, and Inspector Rob Danby who should be able to assist with any operational questions.


The role of the Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) is to be the voice of the people and hold the police to account. They are responsible for the totality of policing.

PCCs aim to cut crime and deliver an effective and efficient police service within their police force area. They are elected by the public to hold Chief Constables and the force to account, making the police answerable to the communities they serve.

PCCs ensure community needs are met as effectively as possible, and are improving local relationships through building confidence and restoring trust. They work in partnership across a range of agencies at local and national level to ensure there is a unified approach to preventing and reducing crime.

Under the terms of the Police Reform and Social Responsibility Act 2011, PCCs must:

  • secure an efficient and effective police for their area;
  • appoint the Chief Constable, hold them to account for running the force, and if necessary dismiss them;
  • set the police and crime objectives for their area through a police and crime plan;
  • set the force budget and determine the precept;
  • contribute to the national and international policing capabilities set out by the Home Secretary; and
  • bring together community safety and criminal justice partners, to make sure local priorities are joined up
