Every police and crime commissioner (PCC) is required by law to appoint a Chief Finance Officer. John Hummersone has held that post in the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner for Norfolk (OPCCN) since January 2014, having previously carried out a similar role for Cambridgeshire’s PCC.
John has worked in local government for 40 years, the last 26 in Cambridgeshire. His previous roles have included Treasurer to Cambridgeshire Police Authority, Director of Finance and Resources for Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Fire Authority and Chief Accountant with Cambridgeshire County Council.
He is a member of the Chartered Institute of Public Finance and Accountancy (CIPFA) and has significant experience not only in finance, but also in financial systems development, property and estate development and corporate governance.
He is a keen, but still learning, musician, enjoys DIY and spending time with his grandchildren.
John’s responsibilities as Chief Finance Officer include providing high-quality financial advice, information and guidance to the PCC so that good decisions can be taken, ensuring the PCCs policies and plans are adequately resourced and financial management arrangements across the Force and the Office of the PCC are fit for purpose.
His experience in the development of financial and business planning will assist the PCC in dealing with the ongoing public sector budget reductions and the widening role of the PCC.
