Joint Audit Risk and Assurance Panel (JARAP)

The PCC and the Chief Constable are responsible for ensuring good value for money, integrity and statutory compliance in all that they do and to provide the public with the confidence that this is done properly, an independent Joint Audit, Risk and Assurance Panel (JARAP) has been established.

The JARAP will seek assurances that the Police and Crime Commissioner and Chief Constable have fulfilled their responsibilities to ensure the best use of resources and public money.

The JARAP consists of five independently appointed individuals. It will meet in public throughout the year, report on their findings and make recommendations for improvements in the management of risk, internal controls and governance to the PCC and Chief Constable. They will also report on progress made by both respective individuals in response to recommendations.

This section of the website is dedicated to the work of the JARAP and will include minutes, reports, actions and responses from the Police and Crime Commissioner and Chief Constable. The JARAP will also produce annually a report that will summarise the outcomes of their work – this will coincide with the production of the annual Police and Crime Commissioner and Chief Constable’s respective Annual Governance Statement, all of which will be published and accessible.
