Would you pay a bit more for 100 extra police officers?

The Commissioner is considering increasing the amount of the council tax that goes towards policing by 48p a week for an average council tax Band D household – equivalent to 15.8% a year. An increase of 15.8% can only happen if supported by the public in a referendum. But it is only worth the cost of holding a referendum if the Commissioner can be reasonably confident of a positive result. That’s why it is vital that he hears your views.

A 15.8% increase would pay for:
  • An additional 100 police officers
  • The re-introduction of police officers to neighbourhood policing
  • Increased management of prolific offenders
  • Extra resources to tackle emerging threats such as cybercrime & child sexual exploitation
