Council Tax 2020/2021
As your Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) I want to continue to put resources into West Yorkshire to increase frontline visible policing to make sure our communities are safe and feel safe.
79% of respondents to my survey on the precept supported the 4.99% increase proposed which equates to no more than an extra £7.26 a year for most households in West Yorkshire.
This will allow PCSO numbers to be maintained, and an overall additional 311 Police Officer recruits as well as Police Staff recruitment in excess of 100. This means key areas of investment can be supported, such as specialist investigators using new digital and forensic techniques to improve criminal justice outcomes for victims and witnesses.
