Sussex Police & Crime Commissioner welcomes Home Office Police funding announcement
Responding to the Home Secretary’s announcement on Police funding today, Sussex PCC Katy Bourne said “ I have been lobbying hard for the best possible funding arrangements for policing, and today’s announcement by the Home Secretary to lift the precept cap is exactly what I have been pushing for."
“I welcome the Government’s Provisional Grant Settlement for policing which provides additional money for counter terrorism and national policing priorities, as well as transformational projects."
“As part of the consultation process that informs our financial planning, I am currently asking residents if they would be prepared to pay more per household for Sussex Police through an increase in the precept. Their views and the needs of Sussex Police will be taken into consideration early in the New Year when I make my decision.”
