Commissioner implements office restructure28 November, 2014
Lancashire’s Police and Crime Commissioner is to implement the restructure of his office following a period of consultation with the employees.
The mid-term restructure is designed to ensure the office is in the best shape possible for the remainder of his time in office as the Commissioner strives to deliver his priorities of:
- Defending frontline policing
- Protecting vulnerable people
- Championing victim’s rights
- Tackling reoffending.
The move comes after a month-long consultation period with staff.
After considering all submissions made during the consultation, the Commissioner has decided to disestablish the roles of the Deputy and the Assistant Police and Crime Commissioners.
He has also decided to reshape his team into three operational areas focussing on: crime, reoffending and criminal justice; victims, vulnerable people and partnerships; and governance and frontline policing. The executive support team and communications team will continue to support the office.
Commissioner Clive Grunshaw said of the restructure: “The new office structure is designed to ensure we have the right job roles in place to deliver the priorities laid out in my Police and Crime Plan
“I would like to personally thank the DPCC and APCCs for their excellent work supporting me through the first half of my administration. They have provided excellent service and the restructure should not be seen as any reflection on the individuals who held the roles that are being disestablished.”
A new director post to head up the office was recently advertised and is currently being recruited to.
The restructure will be implemented immediately with roles disestablished from the end of the month.
