Policing Budget

The Police and Crime Commissioner’s overall budget of £366.7m is made up of 60% funding from national Government grant and 40% from local council tax.

Last year, your support for an increase in the policing element of the council tax achieved the recruitment of 210 new police officers and 65 police investigators who are now actively working to keep you and your communities safer. During this financial year, the increase is providing £7 million additional funding for policing. It is helping to protect the new officers recruited last year, provide equipment and training to make police officers even more effective and is being invested into public contact improvement, enabling your 999 and 101 calls to be handled more effectively.

Find out how much money from your council tax band supports the police and how the policing portion of your council tax is set.

If the Commissioner is permitted by Government to increase the council tax again in 2021/22, would you be willing to pay more?
