David Keane, Police & Crime Commissioner for Cheshire, is urging residents across the county to join the conversation on funding for their police service.
Between 3 and 24 January 2017, Cheshire’s communities will be able to give their views on whether funding for Cheshire Constabulary should be maintained at current levels or reduced.
The public will be able express their opinions online at www.cheshire-pcc.gov.uk on whether funding for the police service should be maintained. It will only take two minutes of your time, and the outcome will influence the decision the Commissioner makes about the policing precept.
You will have three options; a two percent increase, a one percent increase or no increase to the policing element of the council tax.
Explaining the current financial position David Keane said:
“Recent years have seen severe cuts to public services from successive Governments. The result locally has been that we have had to find £52.4 million of savings over the past 7 years. The Government has said that police budgets will be protected at current levels. However it isn’t quite that simple, as the Government commitment does not take into account inflation and is based on local Police & Crime Commissioners increasing the police share of council tax, known as the policing precept, by 2%.”
During the online consultation the public and the business community will be asked if they are willing to support a 2% or 1% increase in the precept or whether it should be kept at the current level. The outcome will then provide the Commissioner with a clear understanding of what the public think before setting the policing precept for the forthcoming year.
