Staff of the Chief Officer of Police or a Local Authority
That despite their legally distinct identities and their differing roles and responsibilities it is appropriate for the Commissioner and the Chief Constable to work together by way of joint endeavour in order to improve outcomes for local people as set out in the Commissioner‘s Police and Crime Plan.
The PCC and the Chief Officer have set up a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU). The purpose of the MOU is to define the role of the parties, the expectations of how they will work together and is a statement of intent that will underpin the partnership between the parties.
Such sharing of business support is not regarded as the provision of services by one to the other but rather a cooperative arrangement for the effective delivery of business support essential to the operation of both offices.
You can see the MOU which was agreed at the Strategic Governance Board on the 14th April 2014.
