Last chance to have your say on Police Budget

Alert message sent 24/01/2022 11:29:00

Information sent on behalf of Cheshire Constabulary

A survey on the level of council tax that people in Cheshire pay towards their police service will close tomorrow (25 January) at midday.

Launched earlier this month by Police & Crime Commissioner John Dwyer, the survey sets out the priorities for next year’s police budget and asks residents for their view on the police precept. You can take the survey here:

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.
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.

Police & Crime Commissioner, John Dwyer said: “I’ve listened to residents since I returned to office in May 2021 and at the end of last year I received an unprecedented response in my autumn survey – The largest consultation ever carried out by your Police and Crime Commissioner.

“I’ve used all that feedback to develop this budget and it’s really important for me to get your views once again. Put simply: This budget will enable me and the Chief Constable to put more police on the streets and invest in the areas that matter to you. I encourage everyone to have their say.”
