Important Notice: Public Inspection Period for Accounts 2019-2020


In light of the global Covid-19 pandemic, many organisations have had to adapt how they work to both maintain essential services and safeguard their employees wherever possible.  Policing is no different and Derbyshire has adapted along with its partners to continue to keep communities safe in these difficult times.


Nationally, there has been recognition of the impact Covid-19 has on the normal ‘day job’. Where the statutory accounts are concerned there has been an adjustment across the public sector to extend the date by which annual accounts must be published (whether audited or not) to 30th November 2020.  Consequently, timetables have adjusted and with it we will be moving the public inspection period backwards from its traditional slot in the calendar.


The purpose of this statement is to advise the public and interested stakeholders that the public inspection period will be at a later date in 2020 and we will update this page once the exact dates of that period have been formalised.




Asset Management Strategy

The Asset Management Strategy 2020-2035 provides a long term plan for future development and co-location opportunities of the police estates across Derbyshire.



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 is available.

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 November 2017 Strategic Governance Board) as part of the update to our financial projections. Please note, Appendix B of the strategic governance board 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 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).

That same report has been restated to present our reserves in the Home Office required report format for all Commissioners to use.

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 shared amounts of reserves. 


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.
