During the period 31 May 2018 to 11 July 2018 inclusive, between 8:45am and 5:00pm, Monday to Friday, any person interested may inspect and make copies of the accounts of Lancashire Police and Crime Commissioner/The Chief Constable of Lancashire Constabulary for the year-ended 31 March 2017 and all books, deeds, contracts, bills, vouchers and receipts relating to them. The accounts and documents will be available for inspection at the offices at which they are normally kept or otherwise by arrangement. Application should be made as follows:
- The Chief Constable of Lancashire Constabulary Telephone: The Chief Finance Officer on 01772 614444 Email: email@example.com

Also during the above period 31 May 2018 to 11 July 2018 inclusive, any local government elector for the area to which the accounts relate will be given the opportunity to question the local auditor and make objections to the accounts for the year-ended 31 March 2018 . Request should be made in writing to Grant Thornton UK LLP, 4 Hardman Square, Spinningfields, Manchester, M3 3EB (Tel: 0161 953 6900) and a copy of the objection must be sent to:
Mrs Angela Harrison, Director of the OPCC for Lancashire, PO Box 653, Preston, PR2 2WB.
If any such objection concerns a matter in respect of which the auditor could make a public interest report or concerns a matter in respect of which the auditor could apply for a declaration to the effect that an item of account is unlawful, the auditor will decide whether to consider the objection and, if he does so, whether to take any action. He may decide not to consider the objection if, in particular, he thinks the objection is vexatious or frivolous, costs would be disproportionate to the sums to which the objection relates or the objection repeats an objection already considered under Section 27 of the Local Audit & Accountability Act 2014 or under Section 16 of the audit Commission Act 1998.
