Annual Reports

The annual report is a statutory requirement.  Part 1, Chapter 3, Section 1 of the Police Reform and Social Resposibility Act 2011 states,

"Each [Police and Crime Commissioner] must produce a report (an "annual report") on (a) the exercise of...functions in each financial year, and (b) the progress which has been made in the financial year in meeting the police and crime objectives in the...police and crime plan".

The draft annual report has to be shared with the Police and Crime Panel, which may make comments and recommendations.
