Council Tax 2018/19 – Have your say on proposed police funding

Would you be prepared to pay more in council tax to sustain our policing levels?

That is the question Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) David Munro is asking Surrey’s residents, following the launch of his annual budget consultation in December 2017, to help him decide on the police precept for the next financial year.

The PCC is inviting the public to fill in a short online survey on whether or not they would support a proposed £12 increase a year to help protect front-line policing over the next year and create a more sustainable service in the years to come.

The survey, which closes at midnight on Sunday 14th January, can be found here.

One of the PCC’s key responsibilities is to set the overall budget for Surrey Police including determining the level of council tax raised for policing in the county known as the precept.

Setting the policing element of the council tax is one of the key decisions a PCC has to make so it is really important to let David Munro know your views and opinions.  David Munro asks everyone to take a minute to fill out this brief survey and let him know their views which can help him make his decision.
