Police and Fire Network
Welcome to the Police and Fire Network – briefing and advising police forces, offices of police and crime commissioners and fire and rescue authorities.
Your advisor, Alison Dewhirst, works closely with the Home Office, HMICFRS, National Audit Office, NPCC Finance and Resources Committee, Police and Crime Commissioners' Treasurers' Society and the Fire Finance Network on strategic policing and fire and rescue related issues. These include police and fire reform, financial and accounting developments and corporate transformation issues to keep you at the forefront of police and fire legislation, policy, current issues and anticipated future developments.
The network also has close links to CIPFA's Achieving Finance Excellence in Policing Programme, launched in April 2019, and CIPFA's Police and Fire Panel, which oversees the governance of the programme.
