The Joint Audit Committee is an independent body which checks both Merseyside's Police Commissioner and Merseyside Police are following national and local regulations, handling public finances in accordance with the law and not taking undue risk.

The aim of the Audit Committee is to provide independent assurance of the adequacy of the risk management framework and the associated control environment, independent scrutiny of the organisations financial and non-financial performance to the extent that it affects the organisations exposure to risk and weakens the control environment, and to oversee the financial reporting process.

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.
