Register of interests
To be open and transparent, the Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) and relevant advisors declare their pecuniary interests*. These interests must be registered with the PCC's monitoring officer within 28 days of starting their term of office. If these change, the PCC (and relevant advisors) must send an updated notification within 28 days.
*Pecuniary interests are interests that a person has in a matter because they (or their spouse or partner) might gain or lose something. This can include a person’s employment, office, trade, profession or vocation. It can also include any 'sponsorship' of the person, including contributions towards their election expenses, any 'contracts' between the person and the public body, any 'land' the person has an interest in and lies within the area of the public body, any 'licences' the person holds to occupy land in the area, any 'corporate tenancies', and certain 'securities' the person may hold.
The monitoring officer (who is the PCC's Chief Executive) has to ensure that members of the organisation maintain the highest standards of conduct in all that they do, and they have three main responsibilities which are:
1. To report on matters he/she believes are, or are likely to be, illegal or amount to maladministration.
2. To be responsible for matters relating to the conduct of members of the organisation.
3. To be responsible for the operation of the organisation’s operating principles.
