Both Essex Police and Essex Fire and Rescue Service remain separate organisations with separate budgets, separate staff and separate decision making processes. Even where a decision taken by the PFCC will effect both organisations, two decisions will need to be take, one in relation to Essex Police and the other in relation to Essex County Fire and Rescue Service.
The PFCC is the effective decision maker, though some decisions can be delegated, and makes decisions following information, discussion and debate during the boards below. The boards for Essex Police and Essex County Fire and Rescue Service are separate. The boards have no decision making power and are there to inform and advise the PFCC in their decision making.
The boards do not meet in public, however, papers and an account of the board business will be published within 14 days. These are published below.
