Panel Funding and Expenditure
In establishing Police and Crime Panels, the Home Office agreed that a limited grant would be provided to the Local Authority acting as the Host Authority (i.e., providing the administrative support and management to maintain the Police and Crime Panel). The West Midlands Host Authority is Birmingham City Council.
All costs incurred by the Host Authority in connection with the work of the Panel are met from the funding allocated by the Home Office unless the Authorities agree otherwise. The Host Authority monitors all expenditure incurred and publishes an annual budget report.
