Under-fire North Yorkshire police boss Philip Allott will face a vote of no confidence in his leadership at a crunch meeting today.
The motion, is proposed by York Liberal Democrat councillor Darryl Smalley, will be seconded by another member of the area’s police and crime panel before going to a vote.
Mr Allott sparked outrage with comments he made about the murder of Sarah Everard.
He said in an interview with that Ms Everard should not have submitted to her false arrest by serving Met police officer Wayne Couzens, who used his warrant card to falsely arrest her before kidnapping, raping and murdering her.
Mr Allott has come under increased pressure over recent days, with Skipton and Ripon Conservative MP Julian Smith the latest person to call for him to resign.
Hundreds of complaints have been sent to his office while more than 10,800 people have signed a petition calling for his resignation.
The panel will hear just four questions from the public.
Mr Allott has issued a number of different apologies for his remarks, but has said he is not prepared to resign from his £74,400-a-year job after being elected earlier this year.
If passed, the no-confidence vote could not directly remove Mr Allott from his post, but it would clearly send a message of condemnation over his comments.
YorkMix will update this story as the day goes on.
