Q4: This information is not recorded.

You may notice an increase in expenditure from 2015/16 to 2016/17. This can be attributed to a change in the law on 1st January 2016. Any determination made to send a police officer to a hearing after this date needed to be chaired by a Legally Qualified Chair (LQC). Prior to this date a chief officer chaired the panel.
