On 22nd November 2012, following the enactment of the Police Reform and Social Responsibility Act 2011, two corporations sole were established – the Police & Crime Commissioner for Leicestershire and the Chief Constable for Leicestershire.
The Police & Crime Commissioner is responsible for securing an efficient and effective police force whilst the Chief Constable is responsible for maintaining the Queen’s Peace and has operational direction and control over the force’s officers and staff.
In order to minimise the complexity for the reader that such a change can cause, additional information has been included to draw out the key differences and to explain how both corporations sole interact with each other. It is recommended that the reader of these accounts first reviews the Explanatory Foreword and introduction to the “Notes to the core financial statements” section to give context and aid understanding.
