Police & Crime Commissioner

Posted by on Dec 16, 2021 in news, News | 0 comments

On behalf of the Police & Crime Commissioner for Hampshire & Isle of Wight we would like to inform all residents that they are invited to have their say.

The Government is giving Police and Crime Commissioners the flexibility to increase the policing element of the council tax in 2022 by £10 per year (for a Band D property) to fund the increasing demands on policing. With over 60% of council taxpayers in the Hampshire Constabulary policing area living in properties that are Band A-C the majority of people would see an increase of less than £10 a year.

The Commissioner’s Office have now launched my annual police budget precept consultation and want to hear residents’ views. I am asking local residents to complete an online survey and/or to sign up to a focus group:
