Please note that the list above is up-to-date (as at the end of May 2020), and no expenses were claimed by the Commissioner during the months not listed.
These items of expenditure have been incurred directly by the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner in relation to travel, accommodation and subsistence of the Commissioner in the exercise of his duties. They are not expenses that have been incurred by the Commissioner personally and therefore have not been reimbursed to him.
