CIPFA statement on the role of the chief financial officer of the Police and Crime Commissioner and the Chief Finance Officer of the Chief Constable

It applies to CFOs appointed by the Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) and the Chief Constable (CC) and to England and Wales only. The report aims to support CFOs in the fulfilment of their duties and to ensure that the PCC and CC have access to effective financial advice at the highest level. Download the accompanying letter
