1.4.2 Leadership accountabilities
This animation explores three areas of accountability. When someone is accountable, it means they have direct responsibility to someone else or to a committee or board for an aspect of their work.
In policing as in many other public services, public accountabilities for performance and financial prudence are integrated with an overarching code of professional ethics which emphasises values like fair treatment and integrity. In this video, policing leaders talk about their roles and how the leadership they exercise is expected to reflect these ethical as well as practical accountabilities.
