Have Your Say: Would You Be Willing To Pay More To Support Your Local Police?
Would you be willing to pay an extra £2 per month to support your local police?
The Central Government Grant for policing has been frozen over the past year, despite rises in policing costs such as inflation.
In order to help frontline policing services, the government now expects the council tax precept for policing to be raised locally by up to £24 for an average ‘band D’ property.
Paddy Tipping, the Police and Crime Commissioner for Nottinghamshire, is now asking you – the public – to give your views on the proposals that would see the policing element of your council tax increased to help Nottinghamshire Police meet the cost pressures it is facing.
