Hertfordshire County Council provides services in the Borough of Broxbourne, including schools, libraries, highways, youth services, fire and rescue, and health and social care.
The Police Reform and Social Responsibility Act 2011 introduced significant changes in police governance and accountability, replacing police authorities with directly elected Police and Crime Commissioners (PCC). On 15 November 2012, voters elected Mr David Lloyd to serve until May 2016 as Hertfordshire's first PCC. The PCC has responsibility for the way policing is delivered in the county and holds the Chief Constable to account for running the force. The PCC decides how funding related to policing and crime reduction is allocated and, in consultation with the Chief Constable, sets the strategic direction and objectives of the force through the Police and Crime Plan.
The Hertfordshire Police and Crime Panel (PCP) has been established to scrutinise and support the work of the Police and Crime Commissioner. The PCC is required to consult with the PCP on his plans and budget for policing, as well as the council tax precept and certain key appointments. Broxbourne Borough Council is the host local authority for the PCP and provides administrative and other support to the panel and its members.
The 2014/15 annual report of the PCP has now been published.
Hertfordshire Constabulary provides policing services in the Borough, including the provision of local safer neighbourhood teams.
