National lockdown: stay at home

Annual Governance Statement 2016/2017

Welcome to our Annual Governance Statement for 2016 / 2017. It is through our Annual Governance Statement that we provide an overview of the governance structures and processes that were in place during the year and outline the findings of our annual review of those arrangements.

Welcome from the Commissioner and Chief Constable

We rely on our people to deliver our services to the public. We rely on our governance arrangements to make sure that this is done properly. We each have a responsibility for ensuring that our governance arrangements remain fit for purpose.

The governance arrangements that we had in place during 2016 / 2017 had developed over a number of years and provided us with a high level of assurance in our joint governance arrangements. Those decision making and scrutiny arrangements have enabled us to deliver the best possible service to our communities and in order to continue to do so we want to make sure that they mature along with our business practices.

As a result of the latest review of our joint governance arrangements and internal control environment we intend to make some changes. It is our shared aspiration that the changes that we implement during 2017 / 2018 will allow us to be more flexible in our decision making and empower our people to continue to deliver the best possible service.
