Running Lancashire Constabulary costs over £300m a year, with almost 72 per cent of this coming from Central Government funding, and the remainder being raised by the policing element of your Council Tax bill.
Following the government’s recent announcement on police funding, PCCs are expected to use the maximum flexibility to raise the council tax precept equating to a £15 a year/29p a week increase for a band D property for the year to deliver the government’s uplift programme which promises extra officers for the county.
The Commissioner is keen to learn the public’s views on his proposal to invest the majority of the money raised through the precept into neighbourhood policing and to find out which policing issues are most important to local residents.
