Police Commissioner seeks your views

November 29th, 2016

Police and Crime Commissioner, Jason Ablewhite is considering a small increase in the policing element of the council tax for 2017/18.

A recent survey on the Commissioner’s draft Police and Crime Plan received over 3,500 responses with many confirming they want to the issue of police visibility included as a priority.

Jason explains:

“Cambridgeshire Constabulary remains one of the lowest costing police forces in the country however maintaining an efficient and effective force costs money.

“With budgetary pressures set to continue over the next few years and the need to save a further £6 million by 2020/21, I am considering a small increase in the policing element of the council tax for 2017/18. This would be just under 7p per week (£3.60 per year) for an average Band D property which equates to an increase of 1.97%.

“Your opinion counts and I would be grateful if you could take a moment to complete this short survey and let me know your views.”
