PCC and Chief Constable talking to members of the public

The way the Commissioner and Chief Constable do business is governed by a Corporate Governance Framework.

This framework ensures they do business in the right way, for the right reason at the right time.

It consists of:

  • A Statement of Corporate Governance – to give clarity to the way the two corporations will govern both jointly and separately.
  • A Code of Corporate Governance – setting out how the core principles will be implemented, and describing the strategies, arrangements, instruments and controls to ensure good governance in the two corporations sole.
  • A Scheme of Corporate Governance – defining the parameters within which the corporations soles will conduct their business.
  • A separate policy and procedures for each corporation sole, with protocols where they operate jointly.

This important document was reviewed in 2019 and re-approved by the PCC and the Chief Constable.

Corporate Governance Framework 2020/21

Jane wants your views on policing funding today...

The Police Commissioner has to set the police budget soon.

She wants your views on  if you would be willing to contribute an extra 19p a week in your council tax  to enable the Chief Constable to recruit 160 new police officers next year, as well help balance the budget and protect jobs?

Without the extra funding the Commissioner will have to reduce the budget, the recruitment of new officers can’t
go ahead and the Chief Constable will be required to cut back on the service again.
