Quarterly demand profiles
The quarterly profiles detail the volume of requests for ACRO's key services. They are updated throughout the year with the figures for the previous quarter.
Chief officers' expenses
These reports detail expense reimbursements made to ACRO chief officers (the chief executive and the head of ACRO). Expenses are reimbursed when they have been necessarily incurred by the officers while exercising their duties. Hospitality is given to help policing business, or when it is considered desirable as a matter of courtesy or protocol. The reports are updated through the year.
Expenditure over £500
These reports detail payments that exceed £500. Any significant spend is formally tendered and assessed for value for money in compliance with Hampshire Constabulary procurement policies. The reports are updated through the year.
The step-down model establishes the guidelines for how we filter convictions in the preparation of Police Certificates and International Child Protection Certificates.
