Thames Valley Police Survey Council Tax Increase - Closing Date Midday January 11th 2018
Police Funding Survey A survey on an increase in council tax to help protect operational policing is launched.
Closing Date: Midday Thursday January 11th
Anthony Stansfeld, Police and Crime Commissioner said: “Setting the budget for 2018/19 needs to be considered in the context of an already constrained financial position as well as the additional pressures policing faces as demand in some of the most complex and challenging areas continues to increase.
“Ideally I would not choose to consult over the busy Christmas and New Year period and particularly on such an important issue, however, the Chief Constable and I only received the provisional police grant settlement for 2018/19 from the Home Office on Tuesday 19th December.
“Unfortunately due to budget decisions needing to be finalised by the end of January I am only able to run the consultation until 11th January. “I apologise for the timing and length of the consultation period but I hope you will take the time to complete the survey which will help the Chief Constable and I to make an informed decision on the budget for 2018/19.”
