Transparency

Police, Fire and Crime Commissioners are subject to a strict regime surrounding their expenses and expenditure and those of Essex County Fire and Rescue Service and Essex Police. The information that is required to be published is set out in the Specified Information Orders and can be viewed via the links below. The tables at the bottom of this page provide links to where this information is published. This is normally on this website (PFCC Website) but some links will take you to information published on on the Essex Police Website or Essex County Fire and Rescue Service Website.

As a publicly elected role the Commissioner also works hard to ensure that decisions he makes are transparent and the public have access to sufficient information to understand the work the Commissioner does on their behalf.
