Financial Information

We think it is important to be as open as possible about the way we manage the budget. This is why we will be publishing comprehensive information on expenditure, resources and decisions at the earliest opportunity to get the latest updates.

Annual Audit

The Police and Crime Commissioner Group Accounts and the Chief Constables Accounts are subject to an audit by an external auditor appointed by the Audit Commission.

The Auditors have a responsibility to review and comment upon the financial activities and to provide an opinion on whether the financial statements presents a fair view of the financial position, and whether they have been prepared in accordance with the appropriate regulations and proper professional practices.
