Scrutiny and Oversight of South Wales Police

The Commissioner within each force area has a statutory duty and electoral mandate to hold the police to account on behalf of the public.

The principal areas of focus where the Commissioner must hold the Chief Constable to account include:

  1. the performance of South Wales Police in the priority areas set by the Commissioner after consultation with others including local people
  2. South Wales Police arrangements for partnership working and collaboration
  3. South Wales Police arrangements for engagement with local people
  4. the efficient and effective running of South Wales Police, including financial management arrangements and ensuring Value for Money.

South Wales Police is held to account through a combination of meetings and activity by the Commissioner and the Commissioner’s staff, as well as assurance panels and committees, internal and external audit, the public and stakeholders (in addition to HMICFRS and other external inspectors / scrutiny arrangements).
