|The PCC is required to publish a set of accounts each year providing a breakdown of the financial performance and financial position for the OPCC and the Chief Constable. The accounts are subject to external audit and members of the public have certain rights during this process. Further details can be found here.|

Community Safety Fund: funds allocated to support the delivery of the Police and Crime Plan objectives. The fund supports collaborative arrangements with local authorities, third sector providers and Wiltshire Police. Victims Fund: This is a specific allocation by the Ministry of Justice for Victim Services and Restorative Justice services.|
