Decision Records


The Police and Crime Commissioner is not required by legislation to take decisions in any specified way or to any timescale. Decisions may be taken at any time provided they follow the published policy of the Commissioner and that decisions of significant public interest are published (as required by Statutory Instrument 2011/3050 The Elected Local Policing Bodies Specified Information Order 2011).

Decisions will be taken:

  • Using quality information
  • In a transparent manner
  • To manage risk
  • To achieve value for money

From April 2017 onward, all decisions, including those of significant public interest, will be taken and recorded using a ‘Decision Record’ which can be viewed by following the link below:

Previous decisions of significant public interest were taken through Executive Orders. Executive Orders signed by the Northamptonshire Police and Crime Commissioner can be viewed by following the links below:
