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 2024 and re-approved by the PCC and the Chief Constable.
