The Police Crime Commissioner has launched a consultation on the policing precept for 2018/19. The details are set out below or you can access a video outlining the proposals at https://youtu.be/lsKkPmUd1Nc

 

The policing precept consultation is looking for the views of Wiltshire residents on the proposed increase of £12 a year.

Currently the average band D household contributes £14.19 per month to local policing, but if residents back the proposal then this would rise to £15.19 per month.

Wiltshire Police receive the fourth lowest funding per head of population in England and Wales. Since 2010, Wiltshire Police has received £19 million less but have been responding to more crimes and supporting more members of the public year on year.

Whilst this is an incredibly safe county, there’s only so far the budget will stretch and services are being streamlined to ensure they’re as efficient as possible at the same time as keeping the public safe. Without this increase Wiltshire Police will have to look at further reductions in officers and staff to close a budget gap of around £3m.

The consultation which runs from 2nd January 2018 to midday 31st January 2018 wants to hear your views on the proposed increase.
