The Statements of Accounts are produced every year by the PCC and the Chief Constable. The law requires the accounts to comply with national accounting standards.

Police and Crime Commissioner for Merseyside and the Chief Constable of Merseyside Police - Audit of Accounts 2022/23

The audit of the financial statements for the Chief Constable and Police and Crime Commissioner for the year ended 31st March 2023 have been completed and copies of our auditor’s report are attached below.

An unqualified opinion and the audit certificate on the accounts were issued by the Auditor on 26th March 2024.

It is noted that the Auditor has not issued their certificate of completion of the audit at this time because they are required to issue a report on the group’s arrangements for securing economy, efficiency and effectiveness in its use of resources. The Auditor has not completed this work because they have applied the special provisions in the National Audit Office’s Auditor Guidance Note 03 and therefore will be completing this work to a later timescale. They plan to complete this work and issue their Auditor’s Annual Report by 29th March 2024, which is within three months of the date of the opinion on the financial statements, as permitted under the special provisions in AGN 03.

Following receipt of the Annual Report and the formal completion of the audit this page will be updated.
