The Home Office has announced further funding for nine PCCs to support their taking forward governance of fire and rescue in their areas.
The nine PCCs are those for:
- North Yorkshire
- West Mercia
All are Conservative PCCs, with the exception being the Independent Gloucestershire PCC, Martin Surl.
A total of £1 million has been made available via the Police Transformation Fund, suggesting that each of these nine PCCs has been awarded around £110,000. This tallies with earlier announcements, for example the Gloucestershire Live article about Martin Surl’s hiring of external consultants for a fee of £100,000 to carry out a review.
A number of “Police & Fire Governance” business cases prepared by and for OPCCs have already been placed in the public domain. These include the Business Case for the Essex PCC. Further such business cases and related material can be found by using Policing Insight’s Media Monitor. facility.
