Essex has first Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner
Joint Governance from 1st October 2017
In July, the BBC reported that “Essex’s police and crime commissioner is to take on responsibility for the county’s fire and rescue service too.
Roger Hirst is to become the UK’s first combined police and fire commissioner in October. He proposed the step to the Home Office following a public consultation and endorsement from all three local authorities in the county.”
The process of extending governance models and the mechanisms used to evidence Local Authority and MP support for the extension includes many interesting documents and comments.
