Committee members advise the Chief Constables and Police and Crime Commissioners on whether the financial reporting and risk management arrangements are fit for purpose for the overall combined policing budget of more than £512million. The two forces have 8,649 staff/officers across 8,040 square miles.
Members receive a minimum allowance of £2,500 a year to prepare for and attend meetings. All necessary training and IT resources (including a laptop) are provided.
Independent advice from committee members provides an invaluable assurance when considering the effective use of public money.
The Treasurer for Devon and Cornwall Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner, Nicola Allen, said: “We want to hear from anyone with an interest in this area of governance and will be happy to provide support, guidance and advice to assist those who wish to experience the field of policing.”
Police and Crime Commissioner Alison Hernandez said of the committee members: “The audit committee members are the eyes and ears for Chief Constables and Police and Crime Commissioners on the way that work on our governance processes within financial reporting and risk management. IAC members give that vital added layer of confidence”.
