How your money is spent
As Police and Crime Commissioner, I am responsible for determining how much money is allocated to Wiltshire Police and to the non-policing services that support my Police and Crime Plan.
The money to provide policing services comes from central government and the local policing precept. The table below shows how that money is allocated.
|How we spend your money|
|Dealing with the Public||6%|
|OPCC Office Cost||1%|
|PCC service commissioning||1%|
|Capital finance / pensions||2%|
In January 2020, I consulted with residents of Wiltshire and Swindon on my proposals for the policing precept for 2020-21.
The consultation showed that 73.52% of respondents supported a rise of at least a £1 per month. However, this consultation started prior to central government announcing the settlement for 2020/21. We received clarification on Wednesday 22 January and were delighted to see that the government fulfilled their promise to policing. The flexibility to increase the policing precept, alongside the announcement from central government, means we can significantly invest in this public service. The small increase of £10 per year (84p per month), for an average household, will mean more money to enhancing our community policing in our neighbourhood areas. This is in addition to the extra 49 police officers we will deliver in Wiltshire and Swindon as part of the governments Uplift Programme. The current contribution of £206 per year will increase to £216 per year for the average band D property.
Please read aregarding the proposal and results of the public consultation.
