Police and Crime Commissioner for West Yorkshire | WYPCC

Council Tax

Mark Burns Williamson

Protecting the people of West Yorkshire has been central to my approach in preparing this latest budget, which both builds upon the foundations we have already laid, whilst taking account of what lies ahead, including the views of the police, our partners and importantly the public during the ongoing impact and challenges posed by Covid-19.

80% of respondents to my public survey on the police precept supported the extra investment proposed which equates to no more than an extra £15 a year for most households, on average around 26p per week given that most properties fall within Bands A to C and will remain the 3rd lowest Police precept in England and Wales.

It will see an additional 251 police officers and 73 police staff recruited and invested into protecting local communities, whilst also sustaining the level of Police Community Support Officers (PCSOs) up to 566 as part of our Neighbourhood Policing Teams throughout West Yorkshire.
