Survey on Police Budget

As Norfolk’s Police and Crime Commissioner, Lorne Green, gears up to set the policing budget for 2017/18, there is still time to have your say and help inform his decision.

The Commissioner, who will take his budget proposals to the Norfolk Police and Crime Panel on 2 February, is inviting people to share their views on whether or not they would support a rise in the policing element of the council tax they pay.

As well as taking part via an online survey, you can share your views face-to-face with the Commissioner in a number of locations over the coming week:

  • Lorne will be attending the King’s Lynn Safer Neighbourhood drop-in session at the council offices on 6 December from 11am.
  • He will be at the Sheringham Town Council meeting at 8pm that evening (6/12).
  • On 7 December, Lorne will join police officers in Mulbarton for a street surgery outside the Co-Op store from 1pm.
  • He will then spend some time on Norwich Market later that afternoon (7/12).
  • Lorne will also be attending the town council meeting in Aylsham on the evening of 8 December.

Having launched his budget consultation at a public meeting in Great Yarmouth earlier this month, the Commissioner says he is delighted with the response so far but wants to hear from more Norfolk residents before he sets the county’s policing budget and, with it, how much tax payers contribute.

“This is one of the most important decisions for which police and crime commissioners are responsible”, Lorne said, “and, while the buck does ultimately stop with me, with 40% of our policing budget coming from tax payers’ pockets, I want all Norfolk residents to have the opportunity to have their say.”

The PCC’s police budget consultation will run until 9 December.
