Have your say on the Police Precept

A request has been received from the office of Julia Mulligan, the Police and Crime Commissioner to publicise a public consultation regarding the proposed precept for North Yorkshire Police. (North Yorkshire Police raise their funding via the Council Tax, and that is called the precept.)

The proposal is that the Police Precept will rise by 1.99% or £4.07 per annum, or 8p a week for a band D property. The reason for the increase is “alongside work to secure £10m of efficiency savings, (the increase) will help enable North Yorkshire maintain police officer numbers at a time when other forces are shrinking theirs”.

There is an opportunity for you to have your say on the Police and Crime Commissioner website at:

This consultation ends on 31st January 2014.

The Press release says that you can also have your say by calling 01423 569562 or emailing info@northyorkshire-pcc.gov.uk or writing to; Freepost RTCL-AGAE-TRTS, Police and Crime Commissioner for North Yorkshire, 12 Granby Road, Harrogate, HG1 4ST.
