Cash For Cops?

The Police & Crime Commissioner for Northamptonshire has launched a consultation on the future funding for police services across the County.

The Government has given all Police and Crime Commissioners the power to raise the policing part of council tax by an extra £1 a month (£12 a year) in 2019/20, which would give Northamptonshire Police an extra £2.9 million if the increase was put into effect.

The average household in Northamptonshire currently pays £4.25 a week towards policing (£221.04 a year for a Band D property).
