Police precept increase survey
The Police and Crime Commissioner is responsible for setting the amount of money residents contribute to local policing through the precept. The Government determines the maximum amount by which PCCs can increase the precept each year.
The current financial planning assumes the precept will be increased by £10 next year. Even with this assumed increase savings still need to be made. The size of the savings needed will likely result in about 250 staff roles being cut across the next few years. These cuts will have an impact on front line services such as visible policing and the ability to investigate crime.
With the cost-of-living crisis continuing, this is a big ask from residents and they want to hear what local people think about the proposed precept increase.
