Resources are used well to provide value for money services to the public by:

  • Demonstrating the delivery of efficient and effective services that meet the policing and crime needs of South Yorkshire, pooling funding where a better service to the public would be achieved
  • Ensuring financial planning is fully integrated in strategic planning and decision-making
  • Delivering and Estates Strategy that is aimed at maximising and making best use of the wider public estate, taking advantage of opportunities to share premises whenever appropriate to do so
  • Reporting regularly on successful delivery of agreed savings plans and the capital programme
  • Working with Regional Procurement to drive down force spend and produce savings
  • Improving individual and service area productivity by focussing on wellbeing, working smarter, and equipping officers and staff with the right training, equipment and technology
  • Understanding current and future demand on police and partners, acknowledging the effect savings plans may have upon each other, to enable comprehensive workforce planning
  • Promoting sustainability through the Sustainability Strategy 2016-2020
