Lancashire's Police and Crime Commissioner welcomed by panel

Blackpool Citizen: PLANS Clive Grunshaw PLANS Clive Grunshaw

LANCASHIRE’S Police and Crime Commissioner has met with the Police and Crime Panel (PCP) for the first time.

The panel, established earlier this year, will scrutinise the work of the PCC, ensuring that decisions made by the new commissioner are in the best interests of the people of Lancashire.

The new commissioner, Clive Grunshaw, was welcomed by the panel before addressing all the members and highlighting his priorities for the coming weeks and months.

Speaking after the meeting, Mr Grunshaw said: “I see my role as commissioner to work with the Police and Crime Panel. I hope we can build a strong working relationship to improve performance and deliver even better services to the communities we serve.

“A scrutiny body is vital to this role, as I want it to remain open and transparent, and so the Police and Crime panel will be fundamental to my work as commissioner.

“I do expect there will be times when we disagree but I am optimistic for the future. We share a common aim in wanting to make Lancashire a safer place.”

During the meeting, Mr Grunshaw formally declared his intention to appoint Ibrahim Master as deputy police and crime commissioner.

This proposed appointment will be put to the panel, at a confirmation hearing, at its next meeting on December 17.

I would like to alert Mr Grunshaw to the fact that there is a Syrian Asylum seeker in Blackburn, Lancashire who has left his own country and come to the U.K. To take Class A drugs and to commit crime. I would urge him to be careful on the streets of Lancashire because there are a multitude of these type of "alien" criminals just waiting to comit all manner of crimes upon the indigenous population. If I were Mr Grunshaw I would expand my knowledge of these criminals by reading all the "Strategic Threat Assessment" documents available in Lancashire. It is very interesting reading I can assure him. Then and only then can he begin to address the problem of Asylum seekers and others from within the E.U. who come to the U.K. with one aim in mind, that being to commit crime and abuse the benefit system.

Where can we read minutes of this and subsequent meetings? Minutes are so often not the finest record of what was said in meetings, but they are all that is usually offered.
