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.
The external audit of the draft statement of accounts for the year ended 31 March 2021 has not yet been completed by our external auditors, EY LLP, due to rescheduling the audit. This situation is allowed for by Regulation 10, paragraph (2a) of the Accounts and Audit Regulations 2015. (See attached link: http://www.legislation.gov.uk/uksi/2015/234/regulation/10/made).
Therefore this notification explains, as per paragraph (2a), that we are not yet able to publish our audited 2020/21 final statement of accounts in line with deadline of 30th September 2021, as per paragraph (1). The Joint Audit, Risk & Assurance Panel will consider the results of the 2020/21 audit at a future meeting, after which we will publish the final audited accounts.
