Panel will oversee work of elected representative
A POLICE and Crime Panel will be established in each force area to oversee the work of the police commissioners and hold him or her to account.
The panel will be made up of ten councillors and independent, co-opted members — similar to the existing police authorities that the commissioner is replacing.
The panels will not scrutinise the performance of the police force — that is the role of the commissioner — but will scrutinise the actions and decisions of the commissioner, and the panel will have the power of veto in some areas.
Councils in the area covered by the force will nominate members to sit on the panel.

James Gravelle, from the Centre for Police Sciences at University of Glamorgan, said: "The Police and Crime Panels will look very much the police authorities that are being replaced — they will be the checks and balances in the system."
