Register of Chief Officers' business interests published

Information appears for the first time on a single website

​The business interests of Chief Officers across England and Wales can now be accessed more easily after appearing on a register by the College of Policing.

For the first time, information about the business interests of chief constables, deputy chief constables and assistant chief constables, is accessible from a single website.

The register of chief officer business interests has been created as part of our work to improve public access to police information.

The register outlines any business interest held by a chief officer and was created to further increase transparency and enhance public confidence in the integrity of chief officers and other senior police leaders.

Police forces across England and Wales provide this information on their own websites, but the College register has made it more publicly accessible.

In June  we published the first national register of chief officer gifts and hospitality which outlined a brief description of the gift or hospitality offered, whether it was accepted or declined, and who the donor was.

A register of chief officer pay and reward packages was published by us in May. It detailed senior police leaders' pay and reward packages including salaries, pension entitlements and other expenses paid. In addition, any officer or staff member whose salary exceeded £150,000 per year was named, and the numbers of officers or staff earning more than £50,000 per year were published.

College of Policing Integrity Programme Lead, Assistant Chief Constable Richard Bennett, said:

"The College committed itself to publishing the three registers to benefit the public, and that work is now complete.

It will allow the public to view the business interests, pay, rewards and gifts and hospitality provided to chief officers across England and Wales.

The information has been collated in one place for the first time and shows forces are committed to being more open and transparent."

The information will be republished annually when forces update their accounts.
