The Office of the Gloucestershire Police and Crime Commissioner is committed to being open and transparent.  This includes publishing the salary, expenses and spending reports for the OPCC, PCC and Deputy PCC. You can access this information below.

Police and Crime Commissioner salary levels are set by the Home Secretary following recommendations by the Senior Salaries Review Board (SSRB). A salary range is in place to reflect the differences in police force weighting and policing challenges in each respective force area for England and Wales. Salaries are also aligned, but not equal to, Chief Constable salaries in each area. Gloucestershire’s PCC is currently paid an annual salary of £65,000 and the Deputy Police and Crime Commissioner is paid an annual salary of £45,000. The OPCC Chief Executive is paid an annual salary of £75,815.

Salary ranges set by the Home Secretary are as follows:

  • £100,000 – West Midlands; Greater Manchester; West Yorkshire
  • £85,000 – Thames Valley; Merseyside; Northumbria; Hampshire; Kent; Lancashire; Devon & Cornwall; South Yorkshire; Essex; Avon & Somerset; Sussex; South Wales
  • £75,000 – Nottinghamshire; Hertfordshire; West Mercia; Cheshire; Humberside; Staffordshire; Leicestershire; Derbyshire
  • £70,000 – Surrey; Norfolk; Cleveland; Durham; Cambridgeshire; North Wales; North Yorkshire; Gwent; Northamptonshire; Suffolk; Dorset; Wiltshire; Bedfordshire
  • £65,000 – Gloucestershire; Lincolnshire; Cumbria; Warwickshire; Dyfed-Powys

View expenditure details

The PCC is satisfied that the spend on contracts represents value for money because:

Grants – All grants awarded by the OPCC formed part of a competitive grant process and were subject to scrutiny and due diligence.

Commissioned Service – The relevant Procurement Department for OPCC commissioned services and co-commissioned services must manage the procurement process in line with the specific procurement requirements, including the provisions of EU Procurement directives where appropriate, which are mandatory. Transactions of this value must follow a tendering process.

The Commissioner’s Fund

Here in Gloucestershire, PCC Martin Surl allocates 1% of the overall policing budget to the Commissioner’s Fund, which supports county-based projects that deliver one or more of our priorities. Our aim is to work directly with communities to make Gloucestershire safer.
