Annual reports

ACRO's annual reports are a review of our work and achievements during the year. They include our accounts for the period, providing an overview of income and expenditure.


Information sharing agreements

The agreements establish the lawful basis for ACRO to disclose information from the PNC to individual non-police prosecution agencies as part of our PNC services. Each agreement indicates the agency’s status, i.e. whether it is a competent authority, as listed in schedule 7 of the Data Protection Act, or whether it is a general processor.

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 & Isle of Wight Constabulary procurement policies. The reports are updated through the year.


Step-down model

The step-down model establishes the guidelines for how we filter convictions in the preparation of Police Certificates and International Child Protection Certificates.
