Reserves

Reserves play an important part in the financial management of the organisation. They are set aside for particular purposes, most importantly helping to support the budget pending savings coming on stream, funding invest-to-save initiatives, and funding capital spending such as short-life capital assets (body worn video, mobile devices, etc).
