As your Police and Crime Commissioner, setting the budget is one of my most important responsibilities. I must ensure that the Chief Constable has the resources she needs to provide an efficient and effective service.
Later this month I will need to make a decision about the policing element of the council tax precept. I am planning to ask the Police and Crime Panel to support my proposal to raise the policing element of the precept by £15 a year (for a Band D property) which is essential to maintain an efficient and effective service, and provide the resources needed to manage demand as effectively as possible.
I would be very grateful if you could take part in the survey (link below) and let me know what you think. Could I also ask you to forward this on to anyone else you think may be interested to comment.
