PCC Receives Transparency Award
The Hertfordshire Police and Crime Commissioner has received an award for transparency for the third year in a row.

CoPaCC, an independent organisation which compares the work of Police and Crime Commissioners and shares best practice, has presented the PCC’s office with its Transparency Quality Mark.

25 PCC offices received the award, which is given to those who are meeting and exceeding the statutory requirements of disclosing information to the public.

David Lloyd’s website contains a specific section for transparency, including details of decision making, finances and the workings of his office.

He said: “For five years now PCCs across the country have been holding police forces to account.

“It is important therefore that we lead by example and that our own offices and websites are open and transparent as well.”

CoPaCC's Chief Executive Bernard Rix said:  

"These OPCCs have all demonstrated that they are transparent in what they do, meeting relevant legal requirements.

“They present key information in an accessible format on their websites and I congratulate them all on their good work.

“I look forward to what I trust will be continued excellent work by each and every one of them in this area."
