The Safer Stronger Communities
Select Committee monitors, reviews and makes recommendations about
a wide range of local matters around; police and crime, equalities,
community engagement and libraries. It gives local councillors the
opportunity to question council officers and cabinet members and to
influence the decisions made by the Mayor and Cabinet in relation
to these matters. The Committee also enables councillors to hear
from local residents, the Police and Fire Brigade, local community
groups, and other interested parties.
The Committee chooses which
community safety, equalities or community engagement issues it
wishes to focus on each year and considers them over the course of
its five meetings during the year.
The agenda and papers for each
meeting are published online 5 clear days before the
