Police Officers' expenses published

The expenses claims of Norfolk police's top police officers have been published online and the force plans to extend this to other senior members of staff in the near future.

Claims submitted by all Association of Chief Police Officers (ACPO) ranks - the chief constable, his deputy and assistants and the force's assistant chief officer - have been uploaded and show travel, accommodation and hospitality claims over the past year.

The force says: “Information about locations and functions/events has been excluded in the interests of the personal safety of the chief officer and colleagues.”

The claims do not include details of chief officers' remuneration pack-ages, but many of these are already in the public domain following various Freedom of Information Act requests for, for example, details of bonus payments and company cars.
