Police funding 2023-24 survey

Have your say on police funding for 2023-24

As Police and Crime Commissioner, it’s my job to set the budget for the Constabulary.

The Precept Survey is now closed.

The money for this comes partly from government and partly from your local council tax and that is why I am asking for your views in this short survey.

I want you to tell me what matters to you in terms of policing and crime. This will help me to understand your continued concerns and inform my final decision on how much I should raise the policing part of council tax.

As we enter 2023, the current cost of living crisis presents fresh challenges for everyone. This includes resourcing policing to meet the issues ahead. I need to do everything I can to make sure our police force is able to keep you safe.

I am therefore asking for your views as I consider increasing the policing part of council tax by 5.8%. For a property in Band A, this would be an additional 19p per week, or 29p per week for a Band D.

This would enable the Chief Constable to support, train and equip the record number of officers we have in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough.
