Dear Lincolnshire Police Authority,

What involvement has there been by PA or associated staff in the panel's formation? How much time and what costs have been associated with this?
Has anyone from the PA (whether officers, members or executive) attended any meetings of the shadow panel. Any minutes, agendas, papers, supporting documents for any meeting(s) are requested.

FREEDOM OF INFORMATION REQUEST 14/12

Thank you for your e-mail of 29 September 2012 requesting access to the
following information:

(1) I would like to review any papers relating to the workings of the
Police and Crime panel (albeit in shadow form at this stage).

(2) What involvement has there been by PA or associated staff in the
panel's formation? How much time and what costs have been associated
with this?

(3) Has anyone from the PA (whether officers, members or executive)
attended any meetings of the shadow panel.

(4) Any minutes, agendas, papers, supporting documents for any
meeting(s) are requested.

I must advise you that the information you have requested at (1) and (4)
above is not held by Lincolnshire Police Authority. However, I propose
to transfer this part of your request to East Lindsey District Council
(which is the host authority for the Police and Crime Panel for
Lincolnshire) and I seek confirmation from you that you will accept this
transfer. Alternatively, you may wish to re-submit your request
directly to East Lindsey District Council. The contact details are as
follows:

John Medler
Performance, Governance and Commissioning Team Leader
Performance, Governance and Commissioning Team
East Lindsey District Council
Room 107, Tedder Hall
Manby Park
Manby
Louth
Lincolnshire, LN11 8UP

If I do not receive confirmation of acceptance by 15 October 2012, I
will assume you no longer wish to proceed with your request with this
Authority and will treat it as withdrawn. Your attention is drawn to the
attachment, which details your right of complaint. Should you have any
further inquiries concerning this matter, please write or contact me
quoting reference number 14/12.

Please find below response to questions (2) and (3) which fall outside
the scope of the Freedom of Information Act as they do not relate to the
provision of recorded information:

(2) No. The Police Authority has had no direct involvement in the
formation of the Police and Crime Panel (PCP) for Lincolnshire.

(3) Yes. There are two existing members of the Police Authority that
have attended meetings of the shadow PCP, namely, Councillor Graham Dark
and Councillor Paul Przyslak. However, both councillors attended as
representatives of their respective local authorities and not the Police
Authority.

Regards,

John King
