Revenue and Capital Out Turn 2015-16 pdf icon PDF 271 KB

Joint Report of the Chamberlain and Commissioner of Police

 

 ...  view the full agenda text for item 7.

Minutes:

The Committee received a joint report of the Chamberlain and the Commissioner of Police detailing the revenue and capital outturn for 2015/16.

The Committee was advised that as a result of higher than expected spending the Force’s 2015/16 revenue outturn required a net transfer from the Police General Reserves of £4.5m.  This represented an overall increase of £1.4m compared to the latest budget approved by the Police Committee in January 2016, which envisaged the need to draw some £3.1m from General Reserves. The impact of this adjustment was a revised balance on the Police General Reserve of £4.1m as at 31 March 2016.

The outturn for the year signified a more challenging position for the Force in light of the need to identify future efficiencies and cost reductions to provide a balanced budget for 2017/18 and 2018/19. The outturn and its implications for future assumptions would inform the review of the medium term financial forecasts, the results of which were due to be reported in September.

The Commissioner reassured the Committee that efficiencies were still being proactively sought and more innovative ways of seeking additional income would be explored.

RESOLVED – That the report be noted.

The update was further to the 2014/15 annual report submitted to the Committee in September 2015 which provided Members with background information on the role of the LADO, referral data and highlighted the need to raise greater awareness of the role both across the City of London Corporation and partners. The Community and Children Services Committee requested that the 2014/15 report be taken to several committees to raise awareness of the role.

 

In addition to sharing the report with members across a number of committees, a significant amount of training and briefings on the role of the LADO was carried out. As a result of this awareness-raising activity there had been a significant percentage increase in referrals to the LADO in 2015/16 compared to previous years.
