Have Your Say: Operational Policing Survey

Survey on an increase in council tax to help protect operational policing is launched

The Thames Valley Police and Crime Commissioner, (Andrew Stansfield) has launched a public survey on his proposal to increase the Police precept from the Council Tax, in order to fund increased police expenditure.

Anthony Stansfeld said: “The Thames Valley Police budget has been cut by £101 million over the last eight years which has resulted in significant cuts to police officer and staff numbers. This year the Government has encouraged all PCCs to raise the policing element of the council tax precept for all households. To prevent further damaging cuts to policing and restore some important frontline policing capability I would like to make use of this Government advice and raise the council tax precept accordingly.
