Staffordshire PCC Wants More Money

Post by Mercury on Sun Jun 25, 2017 11:25 am

Coinciding  with Staffordshire starting reviews of it's IOD pensioners, it is interesting to see that the PCC wants more money to combat terrorism -


Matthew Ellis, the Conservative Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) for Staffordshire, has written to Theresa May and Home Secretary Amber Rudd urging them to widen local tax-raising powers. fter years of budget cuts, the Police and Crime Commissioners (PCCs) want the freedom to increase the annual bills on households to ensure that forces have enough officers to keep the public safe. At the moment, PCCs can put up the part of the council tax that pays for policing – known as the precept – by only two per cent a year, equivalent to nearly £5 in most areas.
