Police Budget 2024/25

Ahead of setting the police budget for 2024/25, I have launched a short survey to gather residents’ views on issues in their community and the level at which the police precept should be set.

The survey can be taken until midday on Tuesday 23 January at www.smartsurvey.co.uk/s/policebudget202425/

People will rightly ask what difference does taking this survey and the amount we pay towards policing make. The answer: Lots. And this is detailed in the image above.

Calls are being answered faster, incidents are being responded to quicker, there have been more arrests, more criminals charged and more ‘action taken’. Cheshire’s streets have more officers and fewer criminals on them. These are the basics of policing that people expect and in 2023 Cheshire Constabulary improved across all of them with the public’s support – So please do share this survey with your contacts and networks so that as many people as possible from all communities in Cheshire can have their say.

In addition to the survey, the latest edition of my Commissioner’s Review highlighting the work of my office in the final quarter of 2023 is available on my website here.

If you require any hard copies of either the survey or Commissioner’s Review, or if you have any accessibility requirements, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

I look forward to working together to make Cheshire even safer in 2024.

Best Wishes

John

Office of the Police & Crime Commissioner
