Statement of accounts
The Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) is required by law to publish a set of accounts each year providing a breakdown of the PCC’s and Constabulary’s financial performance and financial position. The statement of accounts follows a standard format (as prescribed by accounting codes of practice) and is audited by external auditors who also review the financial arrangements in place during the year.
The full accounts (stored by year in the folders above) are very technical and lengthy. The Summary of Accounts is a simplified version.
Annual Audit Letter
The Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner for Norfolk (OPCCN) is audited by an external auditor appointed by the Audit Commission. The auditor has a responsibility to review and comment upon the financial activities of the OPCCN and to provide an opinion on whether the financial statements present a fair view of the financial position, and whether they have been prepared in accordance with the appropriate regulations and proper accounting practices.
The auditor writes annually to the PCC to present his findings and conclusions from their audit and make recommendations for future action.
