03 March 2020

As the Comptroller and Auditor General (C&AG) for Northern Ireland, he is required under section 29 of the Police (Northern Ireland) Act 2000 to audit the Policing Plan and performance summary and to send a report to the Policing Board, the Chief Constable and the Department of Justice for Northern Ireland (the Department). This report from the C&AG reviews the systems underpinning the plan and performance summary. It is not an audit of PSNI’s performance.

This report examines the performance summary of the Policing Board and the Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI) in 2017-18 and 2018-19 and the Policing Plan for 2018-19 and 2019-20.
