Joint Audit Committee

Under governance arrangements for policing, Surrey Police and the Police and Crime Commissioner require a Joint Audit Committee to provide independent and effective assurance about the adequacy of financial management and reporting. The Committee helps to raise the profile of internal control, risk management and financial reporting issues within Surrey Police and provides a forum for discussion with internal and external auditors.

The Committee comprises six independent members. View the Committee’s Terms of Reference or visit our Meetings and Agendas page to see the latest papers and minutes from the Committee.
