Community, Order and Public Safety (COPS)

One of the key remits of this Committee is to provide residents with a safe environment, so the Committee liaises with the police, and in particular with the PCSOs, who are part-funded by the Council. The local Police Inspector and/or Sergeant appears at each COPS Committee meeting, to update Councillors on law and order issues affecting the village, and to take questions from Councillors. This Committee also considers bids for community grants.

COPS is responsible too for the role of the Communities Co-ordinator who, in conjunction with other partners, engages with Poynton’s young people, and promotes initiatives for the adult health and wellbeing needs of Poynton’s growing elderly population.

This Committee also oversees a Poynton Citizens’ Advice Bureau (CAB) outreach service three times a week at the Civic Hall, for which it attracts sponsorship.

Details of other Council Committees can be found on the Standing Committees page and a full list of which councillors sit on each committee and those who are representatives to outside bodies can be found here.
