Wiltshire Police and Crime Panel

Panel arrangements and funding

The Wiltshire Police and Crime Panel (PCP) covers the Wiltshire and Swindon police force area; one of 43 territorial police forces across England and Wales. The Panel is made up of representatives from both local authorities within the area - Wiltshire Council and Swindon Borough Council. There are 11 elected councillors; seven from Wiltshire Council, and four from Swindon Borough Council.  In addition, there are two independent members, serving for a period of four years, who are appointed through an open and transparent recruitment process.

The Police and Crime Panel is funded by the Home Office. The grant is typically used to cover the costs of employing a supporting officer, training and development for members, expenses, and procurement of relevant services. Grant recipients must report expenditure, detailing progress against key performance indicators, to claim the grant funding.
