Norfolk’s Police and Crime Commissioner, Giles Orpen-Smellie has launched his Police Budget Consultation. The consultation is a legal requirement that the PCC must carry out each year.
Having discussed funding with the Chief Constable Paul Sanford, Giles is seeking the community’s support for a precept rise of 5.2%.
Based on a 5.2% increase, a Band D property would pay an extra £14.94 or 29 pence per week and a Band B property would pay £11.62 a year or 22 pence a week.
Residents of Norfolk are being asked if the PCC should increase the police precept of council tax for the coming year.
Have your say
The consultation will run until 5pm, Monday 16 January.
