Ethics, Transparency and Audit Panel

Launched in 2013 ETAP aims and works towards making policing in Staffordshire the most open and transparent in the country. The panel is made up of residents from across Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent, who examine local policing to strengthen public scrutiny.

ETAP members receive training, meet regularly and produce detailed reports on findings to support the PCC in his oversight of policing. Examples of work ETAP have examined includes an audit of senior officers expense claims, a review of complaints and misconduct dismissals within Staffordshire Police and how officers deal with mental health incidents. Their formal statutory duties also requires them to scrutinise internal and external audit reports and review the annual accounts of both Staffordshire Police and the Office of the Commissioner.

The work of ETAP has received national recognition including praise from Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabulary.
