Information sent on behalf of Bedfordshire Police

Do you want to help scrutinise the way your policing finances operate? Could you offer a strong and independent voice on corporate governance affairs?

The Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) for Bedfordshire and the Chief Constable are looking for citizens with a good understanding and experience of public sector legislation and guidance, who are politically neutral, to sit as independent members of the Joint Audit Committee.

The Committee will review and scrutinise the affairs of both organisations, looking at issues such as risk management, internal control, change programmes and corporate governance as well as overseeing audit arrangements and reviewing financial statements.

Four members have already been appointed and we are now looking to appoint a further one. The appointments will be until September 2024.

Candidates are required to be over the age of 18, live or work in the Bedfordshire area and be able to attend meetings at Police Headquarters, Bedfordshire, during the working day. The volunteers will be subject to a police vetting check. Serving police officers or police staff are not eligible for this role.

The successful applicants will receive training and a daily allowance including expenses for travelling to Police Headquarters. The current schedule is based on four meetings each year, as well as a development day.

For more information, please contact Katie Beaumont (Transparency Manager) at

We are looking to appoint an Independent Member for an initial three-year tenure.  They will receive an allowance of £211 per meeting plus travelling expenses.

Closing date
The closing date for applications is Monday 7th February 2022.

Please visit the PCC website for the application form and further information on how to apply.
Please submit all applications via email to
