A message from Police and Crime Commissioner Caroline Henry
The public’s voice is incredibly important when it comes to big decisions on policing and support services in Nottinghamshire.
As Police and Crime Commissioner, I have a duty each year to set a balanced budget and set the amount of funding that will be generated through council tax locally, known as the ‘policing precept’.
Police officer numbers are now at their highest level in over a decade in Nottinghamshire, however inflationary costs and the rising scale and complexity of policing demand continue to place increasing pressure on our services. This is despite the year on year efficiency savings that we continue to deliver.
I know that policing, crime reduction and community safety are important issues to the residents of Nottinghamshire, but I am also acutely aware of the financial pressures being faced by many Nottinghamshire households.
To help me get the balance right, I hope you might be willing to take part in the consultation. It should take about three minutes.
I thank you in advance for your support in our work to prevent and respond to crime, support victims and keep Nottinghamshire Safe.
