The Commissioner and the Chief Constable are committed to ensuring good governance is delivered through the Corporate Governance Framework. This is the framework for 2023/2024 Joint Corporate Governance Framework March 2023,; it is being significantly reviewed for 2024/2025. It sets out the expectations of personnel, and outlines where decisions are delegated. Each year an Annual Governance Statement is produced alongside the Statement of Accounts.
In addition to these arrangements a Joint Audit and Standards Committee has been established, with independent members, who are particularly interested in considering the views of External and Internal Audit. More information about the Committee can be found here
To ensure transparency in decision making the Commissioner publishes a record of all significant decisions made while carrying out his role and responsibilities. With the exception of exempt decisions, decisions are published on this page once they have been finalised. The full process for how decisions are made can be found in the Decision Making Policy
