Website: southwalescommissioner.org.uk Please note - the consultation period closes 18th December 2023 How much would you pay for policing? Precept survey launched giving residents the chance to ‘have their say’. Did you know the Police & Crime Commissioner is responsible for setting the South Wales Police budget and deciding what further funds need to be raised from the additional charge on council tax? This is called the police ‘precept’ and accounts for nearly one half of South Wales Police’s funding, with the rest coming from the Government. In setting the precept, the Commissioner consults with the local electorate through the ‘Our Police, Community’ survey which was launched earlier this month. Responses to the survey will help the Commissioner decide what the public will pay for policing through their council tax in 2024/25. Residents living in a Band D Property in South Wales currently pay £27.04 per month for policing, but over sixty per cent of residents in South Wales are below Band D and pay less and may also receive council tax discounts or benefits. Residents in South Wales currently pay the Welsh average for policing, which is significantly less than the cost of policing in North Wales.
