To approve the Cambridgeshire Police and Crime Commissioner Statement of Accounts 2015/16
For accounting purposes, the Cambridgeshire Police and Crime Commissioner (the Commissioner) is the parent entity of the Chief Constable of Cambridgeshire Constabulary and together both corporations sole form a ‘Group’.
The Accounts and Audit Regulations 2011 require the Chief Finance Officer(s) to sign, by 30th June, that the accounts present a true and fair view of the financial position as at 31st March. The draft accounts were submitted to the external auditor at the beginning of July 2016.
