How your will your money be spent?

The overall budget for 2020/21 is £366.698 million. This year the additional funding raised through the increase in the policing element of the council tax will provide £7 million of essential funding. All of this money will help to protect local policing.

The budget set by the Police and Crime Commissioner will deliver:

  • More frontline police officers providing a visible presence in your community to prevent and investigate crime
  • Investment in new technology to fight crime, meaning that police officers can spend more time in their communities;
  • Give all police officers equipment, training and support they need to fight crime and be even more effective
  • Improved public contact with the police, enabling your 999 and 101 calls to be handled more effectively

The Commissioner determines the priorities for the Chief Constable, and also how the funding received is allocated between policing and wider prevention and intervention work that supports victims, reduces offending, protects the vulnerable, and reduces the demand on policing.  The vast majority, 99%, goes directly to support policing our area.

Within policing it is up to the Chief Constable to determine how police resources are allocated and which incidents are investigated. Decisions on individual service changes are based upon the professional judgement of the Chief Constable.
