The Police and Crime Commissioner will notify the Police and Crime Panel of the precept, which the Commissioner is proposing to issue for the financial year.
The Panel must review the proposed precept and make a report including the recommendations.
Having considered the precept, the Police and Crime Panel will either:
- Support the precept without qualification or comment;
- Support the precept and make recommendations; or
- Veto the proposed precept (by the required majority of at least two thirds of the persons who are members of the Panel at the time when the decision is made).
If the Panel vetoes the proposed precept, the report to the Commissioner must include a statement that the Panel has vetoed the proposed precept with reasons. The Panel will require a response to the report and any such recommendations.
