Have you got views on the tax rise for policing?

“Would you be prepared to pay an extra two pounds a month for more police officers?”


That’s the question being asked by Angus Macpherson - the Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) for Wiltshire and Swindon. He is looking for the views of Wiltshire residents on the proposed average increase of £24 a year to the policing precept.

 

The policing precept, which is collected with your council tax, goes directly to the Police and Crime Commissioner where 98 per cent is allocated to the Chief Constable and the remaining two per cent to the PCCs office for commissioned services which includes supporting victims of crime and restorative justice.

 

Currently, the average Wiltshire household contributes £15.19 per month to local policing, but if residents and local businesses back the proposal then this would rise to £17.19 per month.

 

The PCC says:  “Last year, with resident’s support, I promised to maintain frontline policing numbers after several years of seeing a decrease. I also pledged to continue investing in mobile technology allowing officers and staff to work in the community."

 

“This year, if you agree to this precept rise, I will recruit 41 more officers and 2 dedicated cyber-crime staff."

The consultation will run until 31st January 2019.  For more information on how to share your views please visit www.wiltshire-pcc.gov.uk, you can also email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.;or use #AskAngusPCC on social media.
