One week left to have your say on Police Budget

Alert message sent 18/01/2022 14:07:00

Information sent on behalf of Cheshire Constabulary

Residents across the county have one week left to make their views known on the level of council tax that people in Cheshire pay for their police service. Police and Crime Commissioner John Dwyer’s survey will close at midday on Tuesday 25 January.

You can take the survey at

Launching the survey earlier this month, Commissioner John Dwyer said: “I believe this budget represents what residents of Cheshire have told me they want. More officers, better call response times, and an increased focus on tackling ASB and making our roads safer.

“This budget will build on the work done since I took office in May, where nearly £4 million in extra funding has been brought in to prevent and tackle crime in our county, and in that time the Chief Constable and I have also been able to commit to taking our officer numbers to the highest level in modern times. This should give people confidence in our Constabulary to deliver the priorities set out in my Police and Crime Plan.”

To support the budget, the Commissioner is asking local people if they would be willing to pay approximately 83p per month extra via the police precept, for the average band D household.

The police budget proposed by the Commissioner includes:
  • 120 extra officers recruited
  • 63 more front line staff in areas such as the Force Call Centre
  • Funding for more road safety initiatives and action against anti-social behaviour.
As well as the online the survey, the Commissioner has sought views from Cheshire residents at a number of ‘consultation roadshows’ held around the county, where people could complete the survey and speak to the Commissioner in person.

The survey will close at midday on Tuesday 25 January. To take the Commissioner’s survey online, go to
