You know about the annual Lancashire police precept, it’s never enough
The pic above represents a police car flashing light. Do you ever see one? Often? Never?
PCC Grunshaw asks you to **Have your say**Due to the General Election there is a delay in the confirmation of the level of central government funding for policing and cost pressures remain. How much would you be willing to pay to support @LancsPolice in 2020/2021?
The survey asks “How much would you be willing to pay to support policing in Lancashire in 2020/2021? Freeze – no increase on 2019/20. This would mean Lancashire has less money to spend on policing. Increase by up to 7.7p per week, £4.01 per year for a Band D property. This equates to 1.99% and would raise an extra £1.783m for policing. Increase by up to 19.4p per week, £10.07 per year for a Band D property. This equates to 5% and would raise an extra £4.479m for policing.
The deadline for completing this survey is 9am, Friday 17th January. There is always a poor response overall, but PCC Grunshaw merely wants a majority in favour. He likes his 5%, but there is a time when some might say, enough is enough. Policing should be funded by central taxation, equally paid by all?
