Reserves play an important part in any sound financial strategy.  They assist the Commissioner and Chief Constable to manage the budget in the short/medium term but also to invest in new initiatives that reinforce Derbyshire’s commitment to responding to the ever-changing profile of policing ‘demand. A full definition of the different types of reserves held can be found HERE.

Our Reserves Strategy is refreshed each year, just before we set our budget.  The current strategy was approved in November 2017 by the Commissioner (at the Strategic Governance Board) as part of the update to our financial projections and is found HERE..Please note, Appendix B of the report refers specifically to the Budget and Reserves Strategy.

In January/February of each year, the Commissioner sets both the Budget and the Precept (contribution from council tax).  As part of the papers that assist him in reaching that decision, we include a forecast of our reserves over the period covered by our Medium Term Financial Plan.  In January 2018, we provided a list of all of our reserves and showed our forecasted usage until 2021/22.  The Commissioner approved the movements to/from reserves for the forthcoming year (2018/19 in this case) but also noted the forecast for the years beyond that point.


Budget Reports

The budget reports are found further down this page (and linked again HERE) and the specific report showing the reserves and how we estimate they will be utilised is found in Annex D to that report (near the end).

For ease of access, however, the specific report can be found HERE.

That same report has been restated to present our reserves in the format that the Home Office require all Commissioners to use and is available HERE.

Finally, it should be noted that Derbyshire collaborates with other Forces in the East Midlands on a variety of operational policing and non-operational support services.  Where reserves are held by each Collaboration, Derbyshire is entitled to its ‘share’ of those funds despite overall control requiring joint agreement by multiple PCCs and Chief Constables.  To reflect that broader ‘entitlement’ (without necessarily having direct control) we have included a third summary including those amounts.  It is available HERE.



Expenses which can be claimed by members of the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner can be found on the page named Expenses, Declarations and Interests. This is within the Your PCC section.
