The National Rural Crime Network is committed to transparency and publishes all information relating to its operation, expenses and funding. The Network has agreed a Constitution and Terms of Reference that set out its mission and how it operates.

The governing body is the Executive Board, which is Chaired by Tim Passmore, the Police and Crime Commissioner for Suffolk.

North Yorkshire Police (NYP) administers the budget and funding for the Network. NYP produces the management accounts, issue invoices and make payments under the terms of a Service Level Agreement.

Support for the administration of the Network is provided by the Office of the Police, Fire & Crime Commissioner for North Yorkshire and this work is supplemented by Waverley Consultancy who were appointed in November 2017, following a competitive tender process, to provide communications and public affairs support.
