The finance team for Cumbria Constabulary and the Police and Crime Commissioner has been nominated for a national award.

They are on the shortlist for the Team of the Year award in the Public Finance Innovation Awards 2017.

The winners will be announced in April.

“Over recent years, during a period of unprecedented financial challenge for the organisation, the finance team have been invaluable to the constabulary.

"The staff have sought to continue to deliver an effective policing service with ever decreasing resources."

– Chief Constable Jerry Graham
