Statement of Accounts

Home > Our Information > Finances > Statement of Accounts

The Statement of Accounts are statutory documents produced annually. They provide information about the Police and Crime Commissioner and the Chief Constable’s financial performance and financial position.

There are statements covering the performance of both the Chief Constable and the PCC as well as looking at both together.

All Local Authorities, Chief Constables and PCCs are required to follow the same standard format when producing their statutory accounts. This should enable members of the public to compare and contrast the Authority’s financial performance over a number of years as well as with other Local Authorities, Chief Constables and PCCs.
