Police & Crime Commissioner: "We deserve a fairer slice of the funding cake"

Angus Macpherson, the Police and Crime Commissioner for Wiltshire and Swindon, says an official report by the National Audit Office (NAO) strengthens his calls for fairer funding of Wiltshire Police.

 


The NAO says: "The Home Office’s light touch approach to overseeing police forces means it does not know if the police system is financially sustainable."   


 

"The way the (Home Office) chooses to distribute funding has been ineffective and detached from the changing nature of policing for too long, and it cannot be sure overall funding is being directed to the right places."

 

Mr Macpherson responded to the report: “I have been pressing the case with ministers at every opportunity for Wiltshire Police to get a fair slice of the funding cake. The NAO agrees that reform of funding is needed."

 

“We all face the same complex range of threats, a fact brought home to us all very powerfully with the Salisbury chemical weapon attack."

 

“We get £151 per person to spend on policing. The national figure is £171. It does not make sense to give policing in Wiltshire £20 less per person than the national average."

 

“The Government needs to reform the formula which allocates funds to me. We have been historically under-funded and the people of Wiltshire and Swindon deserve a fair deal.”
