Police Setting 'Priorities' For Next Year
2:22pm 29th January 2010
We are being asked which areas Thames Valley Police should focus their spending and resources on over the next year.
The Police Authority, who control the purse strings, are curently setting next years budget. A proportion of the Council tax goes to paying for the Police.
A force spokesperson said "The Thames Valley Police Authority holds the policing budget and each year has a duty to consult local people before setting the police council tax. We are very interested in what you have to say about the level of precept on your council tax and ask if you can spare a few minutes to complete an online survey.
The Thames Valley Police Authority aims to provide an effective and efficient police service for people who live and work in the Thames Valley. It does this by representing your views, as well as scrutinising the work of the police service.
For more information about the Police Authority or the police budget, visit www.tvpa.police.uk or call 01865 846780."
